Real Madrid superstar Christiano Ronaldo was not only Man of the Match as his side came from a goal down to beat Bayern Munich 2-1 on Wednesday, but also managed reach an impressive milestone – the first player to net 100 goals in the European competition. Not only did the football star earn this impressive title, but he also managed to beat Barcelona rival Lionel Messi (who currently sits at 97 goals) in one fell swoop.
It seems that Ronaldo’s star continues to rise as he keep on hitting milestones and breaking records, leaving the likes of Messi and company in his dust and the rest of the world in awe. Bookies continue to bank on the star with odds in place for Real Madrid winning the Champions League 2017 at 15/8 odds. The confidence in the team is no doubt bolstered by Ronaldo’s reputation. The odds of Juventus taking the title sit at 16/5, Atletico Madrid at 9/2, Bayern Munich a 11/1 and Barcelona at 14/1.
