Portguese counts his personal tally as 101 after Lyon double

Cristiano Ronaldo was thrilled to reach the 100-goal mark for Real Madrid against Lyon to inspire their 2-0 UEFA Champions League victory on Wednesday night. The Portuguese ace struck a brace in France, scoring his second from the penalty spot, to take his individual goal tally into triple figures. The double took his count to 100 goals in 105 games for Los Blancos but Ronaldo says he is now on 101, alluding to a deflected free-kick against Real Sociedad last year which was awarded to Pepe by match officials. The prolific midfielder, who joined Real in 2009, insists the most important thing is helping the Spanish team to success.

Happy

"I'm happy to have scored 101 goals for Real Madrid," Ronaldo said after the match. "I can't choose the best goal because each one is important and helps the team." Wednesday's win at the Stade de Gerland secured Real's passage into the Champions League round of 16. Ronaldo hopes the Spanish giants can now continue to push on in their Primera Liga campaign, where they are currently top of the table and leading Barcelona by a point. "Our first objective has been fulfilled," he added. "Now it is necessary to fight in La Liga."
