Ronaldo's Champions League goals against PSG mean he has scored fewer than only 48 of the 511 clubs to have played in the European Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo's brace against Paris Saint-Germain took him to 116 goals in the Champions League, consolidating his status as the tournament's all-time top scorer - and adding to a continental haul that is larger than most clubs'.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring his and Real Madrid's second goal against PSG on Wednesday evening.

Only 48 European Cup clubs have more goals than Cristiano

Since the European Cup began in 1955, 511 teams have featured in the competition, but only 48 have managed more goals than Cristiano.

The Portuguese is just behind CSKA Moscow's total of 117, while he is only two short of drawing level with his first club, Sporting CP, who are on 118, alongside FC Copenhagen, 1978 runners-up Club Brugge, and Fenerbahce. He is also close to reeling in the 122 of AS Roma, themselves finalists in 1984.

Cristiano has 10.9% of Real Madrid's European Cup goals

He is out in front of big names like Man City (102) and Napoli (60), and such is his scoring impact on the continent's elite competition that his 101 for Real mean he is responsible for 10.9% of the 12-time winners' 929 European Cup goals.

Barcelona, Valencia and Atlético Madrid are the only other Spanish clubs to have netted more than Cristiano, who does outstrip Los Rojiblancos' 107 in the Champions League era.
