Ronaldo Nets 750th Career Goal In Juventus’ Champions League Win


Cristiano Ronaldo fired his 750th career goal on Wednesday while netting his 75th Juventus finish in the process.

The milestone goal came in Juve’s Champions League group stage clash with Dynamo Kiev, with Ronaldo giving the Italian giants a 2-0 lead.

Ronaldo’s finish came in the 57th minute, with the Portuguese star tapping into a wide-open net after an Alvaro Morata shot was pushed out in his direction.

The finish was his 10th of the season for Juventus and his second in the Champions League, having previously scored against Ferencvaros.

It was also his 75th career goal for Juventus as the 35-year-old star closes in on his Portugal total with the Italian club.

Ronaldo has fired a total of 102 goals for Portugal since making his debut in 2003 as he’s far and away his country’s top scorer.

Sitting second behind Ronaldo is Pauleta, who fired 47 career international goals while Eusebio netted 41 times during his Portugal career.

He also fired 118 goals at Manchester United, although the bulk of Ronaldo’s goals, have come with Real Madrid.

During his time in Spain, Ronaldo scored a whopping 450 times, giving him 127 more goals than the club’s second-best scorer Raul.

Ronaldo is one of four current players to have eclipsed the 500 goal mark, matched only by Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robert Lewandowski, with only Ronaldo and Messi earning membership into the 700 goal club.

With Wednesday’s finish, Ronaldo scored his first Champions League goal against Dynamo Kiev since November 2007, 13 years and 25 days ago.

That 13-year gap is the largest between goals by a player against one opponent in Champions League history.
