Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo is on the brink of equaling another Champions League record on Tuesday night.

Ronaldo marked his return to Old Trafford with a double against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon, helping United to a 4-1 victory in the Premier League.

Attention now turns to the Champions League with the 36-year-old expected to make his second appearance for United in the space of three days.

Should the Portuguese superstar feature against Young Boys, he will equal Iker Casillas’s all-time record of 177 appearances in the competition.

Ronaldo was given his first match in the Champions League soon after signing for United ahead of the 2003-04 campaign.

The veteran forward also possesses the record for the most amount of goals, the first 15 of his total of 134 being netted while with United.
