Cristiano Ronaldo has equalled Lionel Messi’s record for the most domestic goals scored in UEFA Champions League history.
Ronaldo scored again on Tuesday night when he opened the scoring in Juventus’ 2-1 Champions League Group G win over Hungarian team Ferencvaros.
In doing so, the Portuguese star extended his usual record in the competition to 132 goals (including qualifying) across spells with Manchester United, Real Madrid and the Bianconeri.
Of that tally, 70 of his goals have now been scored at home which sees the 35-year-old draw level with long-time rival Lionel Messi for the most home goals in the competition’s history.
Messi has netted all 70 of his strikes at FC Barcelona’s Nou Camp arena, whereas Ronaldo’s tally is spread across matches at Old Trafford, the Santiago Bernabeu and the Allianz Stadium.
With both Juve and Barca having secured their progression to the Round of sixteen of this season’s competition, it is possibly that each stars will increase their tally on the current record in the coming months.
