Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo holds some of the best records in the UEFA Champions League. Currently, he is the player with the most appearances in the competition, having played one hundred and seventy-nine (179) games. He has also scored one hundred and thirty-seven (137) goals, the most by a player in the history of the competition, and some other records.
Cristiano Ronaldo played his three-hundredths (300th) game for the Red Devils, the most by a Portuguese player for the club. Just as he did three (3) weeks ago against Villarreal, the Portuguese captain came to the rescue of the English club, scoring in the 81st minute to seal a comeback win for the club. His goal made him set another record of the only player to have scored against thirty-eight (38) different clubs in the history of the UEFA Champions League.
Also, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored one hundred and forty (140) headed goals for both club and country and has well scored in three (3) consecutive UEFA Champions League games for Manchester United for the second time, previously doing so in November 2007 en route to winning the trophy with the Red Devils.
Bayern Munich forward, Robert Lewandowski was one of the Bundesliga giant goalscorers in 4-0 goals against Benfica. He scored in the 82nd minute in a game against Benfica making it his two hundredth (200th) goal across all club competitions since the start of the 2017/2018 season.
With the win, Bayern Munich has earned nine (9) points from their first three (3) games of this season's UEFA Champions League, scoring twelve (12) goals and conceding none. This is the best start to a UEFA Champions League season for the club and the joint-best overall in the competition.
