The 33-year-old Los Blancos superstar became the first player to score 100 goals in the competition for a single club following his brace in Real Madrid’s 3-1 against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.
The Portuguese also became the first player to net in the first seven UCL matches in a single campaign, having scored 11 goals in 2017/18 already.
Ronaldo has now opened a four-goal gap to second-placed Harry Kane, who has, with seven strikes, as many goals as Liverpool’s in-form forward Roberto Firmino.
The latter’s teammates Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are joined by Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Wissam Ben Yedder on six goals.
Philippe Coutinho, who scored his five goals before his switch to FC Barcelona, and Porto’s African striker Vincent Aboubakar complete the top 10.
Messi, meanwhile, has dropped out of the top marksmen in the competition this season after drawing blanks in his last three UCL games in 2017/18, remaining on three strikes only.
The Argentine and Sevilla’s Ben Yedder, though, are yet to play in this match round, with their last 16 first legs only happening next week.
