Madrid claim Ronaldo had already registered 400 Blancos goals, the club having attributed a 2010 free-kick against Real Sociedad, deflected into the net off Pepe's back, to the Portuguese.

Though his highlight reel is filled with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of glorious goals, the 400th came somewhat simply.
After James Rodriguez's left-footed effort was deflected away by Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico, the rebound fell right to Ronaldo, who finished with ease and went off to celebrate his fourth century of goals for Los Blancos with his team-mates.
The goal also takes the Portuguese superstar to 365 goals in European league play, tying him for second all-time with German legend Gerd Muller.
The most expensive player in the world when he moved to the Santiago Bernabeu from United for approximately £80million, Ronaldo is both Madrid's and the Champions League's all-time leading scorer. He trails only Lionel Messi of Barcelona in the all-time scoring charts in La Liga.
