Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been in sensational form in Europe this season, and has broken yet another UEFA Champions League record, one that was held by FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez!

Click through the gallery to see the 10 outfield players with the most appearances in UCL history, as per Transfermarkt!

The Portuguese helped Real qualify for their third consecutive UCL final, after the Spanish giants beat Bayern Munich 4-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

On Tuesday night, Ronaldo made his 152nd appearance in Europe’s biggest club competition, surpassing the previous record set by Xavi.

The 33-year-old has now played more UCL games than any other outfield player in the history of the tournament, and he also holds the goal record for the competition.

De Gea Breaks Ronaldo Record

Ronaldo has found the net 120 times in the Champions League, with Barca’s Lionel Messi closest to him on 100 strikes.

@alizebucs1986 he needed to rest half of la liga to compete at Messi level where he played weekends,midweeks and champions league we had to google to know He still playing now fortnght or three weeks,on ballon dor consistacy will count against him its not forgotten that He fumbled half of the season on the other hand Messi will be remembered through out the season his 3 goal perfomance against ecuado that led to the world cup finals the double as well as his continental goals pichi chi world cup peformance will also add as for Neymar he letf it at the wrong time with his numbers low even if he win world cup with Brazil he will have to be a man of the tournament and top goal score Ronaldo has never convince in the world cup so we waiting for his best peformance in this coming world cup if he goes semis then H will seriously threaten Messi if Messi gets eleminated earlier than him champions league is for the team this year not by him as it showed last night

This CR7 cow is very smart, he does not push throughout the whole he only shows up in certain "important matches" unlike the king who cannot afford to slumber and show up in 2 or 3 important matches. BTW this is a not record for the players it's just a record for appearances like one they use to have at school if any of you here went to school....
