Leading scorers of all-time

Cristiano Ronaldo became the leading top scorer of all time in the UEFA Champions League since its inception in 1992-93.

Ronaldo scored his 100th goal when he netted a hat trick against Bayern Munich on Tuesday — then used the occasion to ask for more respect from fans.

Ronaldo last week became the first player to score 100 goals in European competition  when he netted a brace in the first leg, and he reached this  in the Champions League just ahead of Lionel Messi, who has 94 goals.

The Portugal captain reached the landmark in his 137th Champions League appearance. His first goal came against Roma for Manchester United in 2007.

He has scored nine of his 100 against Bayern Munich, two more than any other opponent, and 23 against all German clubs combined, 10 more than any other country.
