Cristiano Ronaldo Scores His 125th Champions League Goal Against Ajax

Cristiano Ronaldo Scores His 125th Champions League Goal Against Ajax

Cristiano Ronaldo just loves the Champions League, doesn't he? On the 12th anniversary of his first ever goal in Europe's premier club competition for Manchester United, a 34-year old Ronaldo notched his 125th to put Juventus 1-0 away at Ajax.

On the stroke of half-time at the Johan Cruyff Arena, the Portuguese superstar met Joao Cancelo's cross with a stunning diving header past Andre Onana and celebrated with his trademark "SIUUUU!" celebration.

Sensationally, it was the 97th headed goal of Ronaldo's illustrious career and his 24th goal in 21 Champions League quarter finals he has been involved in.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner now has more Champions League goals than Thierry Henry and Raul combined - which is pretty phenomenal considering what those two legends achieved in the game.

But easily the most impressive statistic to emerge from Ronaldo's header is the fact he is the joint highest-scorer of Champions League goals in Amsterdam, despite never playing a single minute for Ajax.

Maybe UEFA should grant Ronaldo's request and rename the competition to the 'CR7 Champions League'...
