Cristiano Ronaldo racked up his 400th career goal in Real Madrid's 3-0 win against Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu.

Karim Benzema opened the scoring for Madrid in the 67th minute before Ronaldo added two more late on from close range, his second assisted by Gareth Bale.

Out of his personal tally of goals spanning 12 years for Sporting Lisbon (5), Manchester United (118), Madrid (230) and Portugal (47), 259 were with his right foot.

The goals have come in 653 games against 109 different opponents, with Sevilla his biggest victims - Ronaldo has scored 15 against them. The 28-year-old's career average stands at 0.61 goals per game.

Ronaldo's haul also includes 99 penalties and free-kicks.
