Cristiano Ronaldo’s ongoing battle with Lionel Messi shows no sign of abating, with the Real Madrid man now topping more Champions League charts.
The Portuguese teed up Karim Bemzema during a meeting with APOEL on Tuesday to record his 27th assist in Europe’s premier club competition over the last 10 years.
Nobody can claim to have bettered that return, with the four-time Ballon d’Or winner continuing to raise the bar when it comes to individual achievement.
Ronaldo already topped the charts regarding all-time Champions League assists, with his tally lifting him above Barcelona talisman Messi and other iconic figures such as Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs and Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
He is also the leading marksman among the continental elite, as the only man to have netted more than 100 times among elite competition.
