The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has a knack for turning up when it matters in Europe's elite club competition.
He's arguably the greatest player in Champions League history and one performance in particular that stands out came back in 2017's quarter-finals.
Bayern had gone drawn level in the tie thanks to Robert Lewandowski before Ronaldo scored his first of the game.
A Sergio Ramos own goal then brought the Bundesliga giants level again and in extra time, it became the Ronaldo show.

Cristiano Ronaldo nets his 💯th Champions League goal in a hat-trick vs Bayern.
Absolutely unreal. 😱pic.twitter.com/WJyGf6J2g6
He scored in the 104th and 109th minute of extra time to give Madrid a resounding 5-3 lead on aggregate before Marco Asensio seal passage to the semi-finals.
While all this was going on, Bayern's admin was having an absolute meltdown.
"There it is, Ronaldo out of nowhere," it read after his first goal.
What followed that was "Ronaldo. Fed up of writing his name in this tie."
By the end they'd completely had enough. "Not even saying it this time," was tweeted as Ronaldo scored his hat-trick.
They're the kind of levels we won't be seeing again for a long time.
Madrid would go on to win the Champions League that season during a sensational run which saw them win three in a row.
A huge chunk of that was down to Ronaldo and his influence up front.
The 37-year-old is back at Manchester United and despite struggling in the Premier League, he's still shown up in the Champions League.
He's scored six in six this campaign and in games against Villarreal and Atalanta, his last minute goals earned United a win and a draw respectively.
United are currently level at 1-1 in their last 16 tie with Atletico Madrid.
