The 32-year-old reached the historic milestone during Los Blancos' second leg clash against Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals, in a game where he netted a hat-trick.

However, the Portuguese insists he never doubted himself to beat his long-standing rival, Messi, who currently sits on 94 goals.

“I always believed I would be the first player in Champions League history to score 100 goals," Ronaldo told UEFA.com

“I did it. It was a goal that I set myself at the beginning of the season and, thanks to God, I achieved it.

“I would obviously like to thank all my team-mates, the coach, all the staff and all the Real Madrid fans."

Los Blancos will lock horns with Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
