Another goal, another milestone for Cristiano Ronaldo. 

The Real Madrid striker scored the 90th goal of his Champions League career on Tuesday, burying a shot into the top of the net in the 64th minute against Roma in the second leg of their round-of-16 series. Real Madrid entered the day with a 2-0 aggregate advantage and was seeking a berth in the quarterfinals, and after Roma squandered some genuine opportunities, Ronaldo put an effective end to the tie.

Ronaldo’s goal came off a cross from Lucas Vazquez, and gave his team a 1–0 lead on the day, 3-0 on aggregate. James Rodriguez later padded the lead even further.

The goal was the 13th of the Champions League season for Ronaldo, who holds the all-time record for the competition. The most he’s scored in a single Champions League season is 17, a record which he accomplished in 2013–14. Of Ronaldo’s 90 goals, 44 have come at home, 44 have come on the road and two have come at neutral sites, according to UEFA.
