Cristiano Ronaldo equals Champions League appearance record 14 September 2021

Having been named in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI for tonight’s game in Switzerland (17:45 BST), Ronaldo will play his 177th, and record-tying, game in European club football’s elite competition. 

The tally, that excludes our no.7’s four matches played in qualifying rounds, sees him go level with current record-holder and three-time tournament winner Iker Casillas. 

The former Real Madrid and Porto goalkeeper has retired since setting the bar at 177 during the Portuguese side’s 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool at the quarter-final stage of the 2018/19 competition, and there’s no doubt that Ronaldo will have one eye on surpassing his former team-mate’s historic achievement in our other group matches to come!
