What is old is new.
Ronaldo scored his 135th UCL goal early in Tuesday’s match between the Red Devils and Young Boys in Switzerland, 11.5 years away from his last (part of a 2-goal, 1-assist semi-final second leg against Arsenal).

So yeah, the first goal of the Champions League season comes from the player who has done more than anyone else, and that’s pretty remarkable.
Ronaldo’s goal was slightly better than in the warm-up when the megastar fired a shot into the head of a flight attendant.
