While his domestic drought continues, Cristiano Ronaldo maintained his Champions League form with his two strikes against Apoel, on Tuesday, which took him to a grand total of 100 European goals for Real Madrid.

The victory over the Cypriot side was a much needed confidence boost for Los Blancos, especially after the Madrid derby draw left them an entire 10 points behind Barcelona at the top of La Liga. Of Ronaldo’s 100 continental goals for Los Blancos, 98 have come in the Champions League whilst the other two were in the UEFA Super Cup, Marca reported.

His tally of eight in the competition this season has him placed as the top scorer, he is also on the cusp of making even further history. Scoring against Apoel marked the fifth successive Champions League match day in which the former Manchester United forward has found the net, he is now just one match shy of Burak Yilmaz’s record of six from the 2012/13 season.

To date, only two players have managed to start the Champions League by scoring in the opening five matches, Alessandro Del Piero was the first in the 1995/96 season whilst Sergei Rebrov followed suit in 1997/98.

Ronaldo has scored in nine of Los Blancos’ last ten European matches; this run has seen him register a total of 18 goals.
