The Champions League is the biggest and most sought after trophy in world football. The creme de la creme of Europe thrash it over eight months to be crowned the best on the continent and over the years we’ve seen some magnificent sides do it. Certain countries tend to go through phases of domination, with Spain currently reigning supreme. Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid have lifted the famous trophy in three of the last four seasons and they could become the first side in Champions League history to win it in three consecutive seasons should they go all the way this time around.The main catalyst behind their success over the last few seasons has been Balon D’or holder Cristiano Ronaldo who absolutely loves this competition.
The 33 year-old has hit a staggering 120 goals in the Champions League which is a phenomenal achievement, even more so when you see that he’s done it in just 150 games. The Portugal international boasts several records in the CL but another one he’s closing in on is the most appearances, with him currently just 17 behind former Madrid teammate Iker Casillas.
