Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos netted his 100th goal for the club in their 3-2 Champions League win over Inter Milan on Tuesday.

The Spaniard broke free from his marker on a corner to head home Real Madrid’s second goal in the 33rd minute that brought up his century for the club.

Even though, the visitors stormed back to level matters at 2-2, Real Madrid registered their first win in the competition thanks to a late Rodrygo winner.

However, the night belonged to Ramos who surpassed another milestone in his career.

Ramos who has been on penalty duties lately for the club has scored 21 times from the spot, while scoring one more with his feet from open play. He has scored two free-kicks while netting 55 headers, the latest one of which came on Tuesday night.

Ramos who has scored in two Champions League finals for Real Madrid that includes a stoppage-time equaliser against Atletico Madrid in the 2014 final, is now 19th in the list of club’s all-time goalscorers, only four goals behind the Brazilian great Ronaldo and five behind Gareth Bale.

He has more than twice the goals scored by Zinedine Zidane, his manager now and 36 more than Ruud van Nistelrooy.

However, he isn’t Real Madrid’s all-time top-scoring defender with that honour falling to Fernando Hierro who netted 124 times for the club. However, it’s important to note that Hierro played many games as a midfielder.
