The Portugal international has been in fine form for Italian giants Juventus of late, having struck 11 goals in his past seven league matches. As such, he has now scored 736 times in his career, making him the fifth best scorer of all time.
The 34-year-old's brace against Parma on Sunday saw him jump ahead of legendary German striker Gerd Muller, and took him to within 10 strikes of Ferenc Puskas' fourth spot.
In third place is three-time FIFA World Cup winner Pele, who is regarded as one of the best players ever and scored 767 times in his career.
Perhaps surprisingly, Pele is not the best-scoring Selecao player of all time, with Romario ahead of him in the ranking with 772 strikes, while the No. 1 spot is held by Czech Republic icon Josef Bican with 805 career goals.
Ronaldo might believe he has the ability to catch Bican, but is there a possibility that he himself gets overtaken by his biggest rival Messi, who is currently seventh in the ranking?
The six-time Ballon d'Or winner has found the back of the net 717 times over the course of his career thus far – click through the gallery to see the full top 10!
