Cristiano Ronaldo fired past Gianluigi Buffon with 20 minutes of the final gone at the Millennium Stadium as Los Blancos hit a historic mark
Real Madrid have created a small piece of history by scoring their 500th goal in the Champions League – the first team in the history of the competition to reach that milestone.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s strike against Juventus at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff during Saturday’s final allowed the Santiago Bernabeu club to attain that mark.
Zinedine Zidane’s side have beaten rivals Barcelona to the punch in this regard, though the Catalans are still the competition’s second most prolific side, having scored 459 times. Bayern Munich, on 415, come in third, while Manchester United are England’s most deadly side, albeit significantly back on 350.
This season alone, Madrid have found the net on 33 occasions, with Cristiano Ronaldo netting 11 of these. Karim Benzema is one further back on five.
