Unless Cristiano Ronaldo suddenly decides to add mercy to his list of virtues, the Real Madrid forward will have a good shot at scoring his 100th goal in European competition Wednesday.Ronaldo, who once aptly described himself as "rich, handsome and a great player," is two goals short of that landmark before Madrid visits Legia Warsaw in the Champions League Wednesday.Ronaldo is the all-time leading scorer in the Champions League, with 95 of his European goals coming in the tournament he helped Madrid win for a record 11th time last season.But Barcelona rival Lionel Messi has closed the gap with Ronaldo in their never-ending scoring duel after netting six goals to lead the Champions League this season. Messi has 89 Champions League goals, and 92 in all UEFA competitions.The Polish team has lost all three group matches and conceded a tournament-high 13 goals.Madrid, which beat Legia 5-1 in their first meeting without any goals from Ronaldo, are undefeated in 26 matches across all competitions dating back to last season's quarterfinals.
