Ramos’ feat is the all the more remarkable considering he is a defender. His glittering career at Real reads 659 appearances, 100 goals and 22 trophies since he joined from Sevilla in 2005.
And reflecting on his career to Marca, Ramos has chosen his five favourite goals for the Spanish giants out of his 100.
Coming in at No 5 for the Real captain is his first goal for the club in the Champions League. That came during his maiden season for Real when they travelled to Greece to take on Olympiacos.
Ramos put his side ahead with a towering header at the back post from a Raul Bravo cross. Sadly for Ramos it turned out to be in a losing effort as they lost in Athens 2-1 with former Barcelona forward Rivaldo scoring the winner after being set up by an emerging talent by the name of Yaya Toure.

In fourth place is a dramatic equaliser at eternal rivals Barcelona during their LaLiga encounter in December 2016. Barca had taken the lead from a Luis Suarez glancing header.
That strike looked to condemn Real to their first defeat of the season but Ramos pounced in the 89th-minute with a header from Luka Modric’s cross. That goal saw Real remain six points clear of defending champions Barca – after 14 matches at the top of the table – and proved a decisive moment as Real wrestled the title from their fiercest foe.
The Nou Camp equaliser is the only domestic goal to feature in Ramos’ top five, with the rest comprising of Champions League efforts.
Third on the list is another header from Ramos – this time the opener in stunning 4-0 win at then-Champions League holders Bayern Munich in the 2014 semi-final second leg.
