Ronaldo has a total of 139 goals in the Champions League thanks to his consistency. He has 16 more goals than his nearest rival, Lionel Messi. When it comes to the competition, however, Ronaldo is more than simply about goals. Surprisingly, he also retains the competition record for most assists. he has a total 42 assist.
3. Only Player To Score 50 Plus Goals In Premier League, La Liga and Serie A
Ronaldo is the only player in Europe's top five leagues who has scored more than 50 goals. The goal machine has 88, 311, and 81 goals in the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A, respectively, as of this writing.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo Is The All-time Leading Goalscorer
This is the kind of record that brings an argument to a close. Cristiano Ronaldo holds the record for most goals scored in a single season in the history of football. He has 794 goals, surpassing Pele's long-held record of 765 goals. On February 21, 2021, the Portuguese goal-machine broke the record when he scored against Verona in Serie A. That was his 766th goal, and he's already scored nearly 30 goals in less than a year. Ronaldo, unlike Pele, is a late bloomer who is still going strong.
