Cristiano Ronaldo Scores 750th Career Goal During Juventus 3-0 Dynamo Kiev
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 750th professional goal during Juventus' 3-0 win over Dynamo Kiev this evening.
The Portuguese superstar lined up for his 173rd Champions League game knowing his side had already qualified from Group G.
But it didn't stop the 35-year-old getting in on the action, tapping in an Alvarto Morata deflection from close range.
It means he's scored 132 goals in Europe's elite competition and 750 overall since making his debut in 2002.

Juventus opened the scoring through Federico Chiesa in the 21st minute, with the Italian comfortably heading home.
Ronaldo then got in on the act in the second half before Alvaro Morata finally got a goal for himself in the 66th minute.
Victory means Andrea Pirlo's side are now three points behind group leaders Barcelona, who defeated Ferencvaros 3-0 elsewhere in Group G.
Those two will face off at the Camp Nou next week.
Do you think Cristiano Ronaldo is football's greatest ever forward?
