Real Madrid’s defender Sergio Ramos is congratulated by Real Madrid’s Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring during the Spanish league football match Real Madrid CF vs CA Osasuna at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid on September 10, 2016.
Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said playing against Sporting Lisbon is a privilege, but he is very determined to hit 100 goals in the Champions League.
Ronaldo is just seven goals short of a century of goals in the Champions League, as Madrid begin their quest to defence their trophy against the Portuguese’s former club on Wednesday.
The three-time World Player of the Year, came through Sporting’s academy and scored the winner for Manchester United against the Portuguese club in 2007. But he has never faced them in a Madrid shirt.
“It’s a special match, it’s a special team. I wanted to draw Sporting again,” Ronaldo told UEFA.com.
“To play Sporting again is a privilege for me.
“It means a lot, it is the team that formed me, that I have in my heart, but I play for Real Madrid now.
“That is the club I have to defend, the club I love and that is why I want to win.”
