A new league, a new country and a new challenge but masterclasses and top-drawer Champions League performances are nothing new for the man himself – Cristiano Ronaldo. After 124 Champions League goals and 76 goal contributions in 77 knockout matches (62 goals, 14 assists) , there doesn’t seem anything on planet Earth that could stop Ronaldo from achieving greater heights.
CR7 lives for the spectacles and grandeur and at the age of 34 he has proved yet again , there’s no one better than him at that. A hat-trick on an intense night in Turin to turn a two nil deficit right around last night was the Portuguese superstar’s most recent masterclass. Let’s take a walk down memory lane to remember some of CR7’s other hauls under the Champions League stars.
