Ronaldo eying centurion in Lisbon homecoming

Cristiano Ronaldo can become the first player to score 100 goals in European competition as Real Madrid come up against his former side Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League tonight.

The forward has 98 goals, with 95 of those coming in the Champions League.

The European champions need only a point from their Group F game against Sporting to progress to the last 16.

Real skipper Sergio Ramos and striker Karim Benzema have recovered from injuries and could start.

They were unused substitutes in the 3-0 win over city rivals Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

Coach Zinedine Zidane’s team have eight points from their four group games, two behind German side Borussia Dortmund who have already qualified for the knockout stage and play bottom side Legia Warsaw at home.

As well as 95 goals in the Champions League proper, Ronaldo has found the net once in Champions League qualifying (for Manchester United against Debrecen in 2005), and twice in the 2014 Uefa Super Cup final for Real.
