Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first man to win 100 Champions League, with the Portuguese reaching that mark against Valencia.

Records continue to tumble around the former Madrid player as the bar of individual excellence is raised in each passing campaign.

Ronaldo was not among the goals in his most recent outing, but he still made a telling contribution in a 1-0 victory for the Serie A champions.

It was his cross that allowed Mario Mandzukic to record the only effort of the game, with a narrow success enough to carry Juve into the last 16.

Their talismanic No. 7 is now one step closer to capturing the sixth continental crown of his remarkable career.

He has previously lifted the trophy with Manchester United and on four occasions with Real Madrid.

When taking that haul into account, it should come as no surprise to find that he has become the first player to hit a century of wins in the competition.

The Portuguese is already the all-time leading scorer in Europe’s elite club event, with 121 efforts to his name.

He boasts the record for most goals recorded in a single European season (17) and also sits second and third on that list.
