Cristiano: 98 Champions League goals

The Portuguese striker could make history this evening at the Santiago Bernabeu by becoming the first player to notch 100 goals in Europe's top competition. The Real Madrid No.7 has found the net 98 times in the 136 games he has played in the tournament during his carrear.

Legia long-shots

A win for the Polish side at the Santiago Bernabeu this evening pays out a very generous 67/1. However with two defeats in their opening Champions League 2016/17 Group F games (1-6 at home to Dortmund and a 2-0 loss away to Sporting) the opens are not inspiring for even the most ambitious betting expert.   


Mariano sidelined

Mariano has been left out of tonight's squad by French coach Zinedine Zidane. Despite his promise at Real Madrid Castilla last season the young striker has only played for 13 minutes this season so far, coming on at the end of the Madrid-Celta LaLiga clash at the Bernabeu.
