We breakdown Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo's record-breaking 100 Champions League goals after his latest hat-trick against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
The prolific Portugal international's treble not only helped his side progress into the Champions League semi-finals for the seventh straight season, but it also saw him become the first player to reach a century of goals in Europe's premier club competition.
Ronaldo's ton, scored in just 137 matches, includes 85 goals for Real and 15 for previous club Manchester United.
The 32-year-old scored just once in his first 32 European fixtures for Sir Alex Ferguson's team, against Debrecen back in 2005, while he had to wait until October 2012 for his first hat-trick.
Since then, though, Ronaldo has managed to register five more Champions League hat-tricks, with Tuesday's against Bayern now making the Bavarians his favourite opponent to face in the competition.
The 2013/14 campaign is Ronaldo's most successful in front of goal, with the playmaker recording a single-season record 17 Champions League strikes as Real finally won La Decima.
The Portuguese netted in eight straight encounters during that impressive run, culminating with his successful penalty in Madrid's 4-1 extra-time win over Atletico in the final.
Who would bet against Ronaldo in the final on June 3 helping Los Blancos to become the first club since AC Milan in 1989 to be European champions two years in a row?
