Cristiano Ronaldo will match Iker Casillas' Champions League appearance when he takes to the field against Young Boys.

The 36-year-old has been named in United's starting lineup by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which will be his 177th appearance in the competition.

Ronaldo first appeared way back in 2003, playing in United's 2-1 defeat to VfB Stuttgart, and remarkably didn't score his first Champions League goal until his 30th outing - a brace in the 7-1 win over AS Roma in the quarter-finals

But after bagging those two goals, Ronaldo hasn't stopped finding the net - scoring an incredible 135 goals to date.
