Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to score 100 goals for a single club in the UEFA Champions League, just pipping Lionel Messi to the honour. Only ten have managed 30 or more.

Cristiano Ronaldo this week became the first player to score 100 goals for a single club in the UEFA Champions League – only ten in total have managed 30 or more.

Ronaldo's penalty equaliser against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday took him to 100 for Real Madrid, with his 101st strike arriving in the second half. With those two goals, he is up to 116 in the UEFA Champions League, 15 of them for Manchester United before his Madrid move.

Lionel Messi, on 97 goals ahead of Tuesday's trip to Chelsea, is a Barcelona hat-trick away from emulating Ronaldo's centuries: both for one club and overall in the UEFA Champions League. The only other player to score 50 for one club was the first man to pass a half-century in the competition: Raúl González, with 66 goals for Madrid.

Further down the list, and just one goal shy of Alessandro del Piero's 42 for Juventus, Karim Benzema is a third Madrid player in the top five, one clear of Thomas Müller from Bayern München. Ronaldo, Messi, Benzema and Müller are the only players in the top ten still with those listed clubs (and indeed still in this season's competition). Not far behind, Sergio Agüero has 29 for Manchester City and Robert Lewandowski 28 for Bayern.
