UEFA Champions League

Why Champions League Should Be Called Cristiano Ronaldo's League

Cristiano Ronaldo has gone viral after beating Iker Cassilas' Champions League appearance record of 177. The Portuguese talisman has shown that age is nothing more than a number, as he has broken every Champions League record from the most appearances to the most goals ever scored. 

With the win over Villareal in stoppage time, he now has the most Champions League victories ever. 

Cristiano Ronaldo has smashed the following records during his time with the Real Madrid team: 

1. Most appearances in the competition

With 178 appearances, Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed Real Madrid's famous goalie Iker Cassilas. Ronaldo has 26 less appearances than Lionel Messi. The Argentine has made 152 appearances in all competitions for his country. Xavi only has 151 appearances under his belt, while Raul Gonzalez is just behind him with 142. 

2. Most wins in the championship

Porto's Cristiano Ronaldo has now won the Champions League competition a record-breaking number of times. He has 113 victories under his belt. 

3. Most Goals

In the Champions League, Ronaldo has dominated in every facet. He's proven to the rest of the world that he's the best. In total, Cristiano has 138 goals in all competitions, which makes him the all-time leading goal scorer. 

4. Most assists in the Champions League

You're going to be shocked, I know it. CR7 has the most assists in the history of the sport, and I can vouch for it. Lionel Messi, with 36 assists, is right behind him with 42. Angel Di Maria, La Pulga's native son, has 32 assists to his credit.
