Real Madrid picked up a 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 first-leg tie today, behind a pair of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, including his 100th UEFA Champions League goal for Real Madrid.

It was a historic moment as Cristiano became the first player to ever reach the 100-goal milestone for a single club.

Cristiano hit the century mark on a penalty kick which tied things up at 1-1, and added another in the final 10 minutes later which was all Real Madrid needed to secure the victory. Marcelo found the back of the net just after Cristiano's second goal to put the icing on the cake. 

Los Blancos now have the advantage heading into the second leg in France. The two teams will square off again on March 6th.

Check out some of the reactions to Real Madrid's 3-1 victory below.
