                         UEFA Champions League Sets Record With 40 Goals In One Night


The goal
machines of Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Donetsk cranked into top gear on
Tuesday as the Champions League captivated its continental audience with
a record 40 goals in one eight-game night.

Bayern, who
humbled Roma 7-1, Chelsea, who beat Maribor 6-0, and Shakhtar, who
enjoyed a 7-0 win at Borisov, contributed 20 between them on an evening
to forget for defenders and goalkeepers alike.

Ukraine’s
Shakhtar became the first team to score six times in the first half of a
Champions League match, and their victory was the joint-best for an
away side.

Shakhtar’s
Brazilian striker Adriano became the first player to score four before
halftime – and at 17 minutes he now holds the competition record for the
quickest four-goal tally.

He added another late on to join Lionel Messi as the only players to have netted five times in a Champions League outing.

Messi scored
once in Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Ajax to pull level with Cristiano
Ronaldo on 69 Champions League goals, two behind all-time leading scorer
Raul.

Chelsea’s win against Maribor was their record victory in the Champions League.

In another high-scoring contest, Schalke beat Sporting 4-3. 

 Shakhtar’s
Brazilian striker Luiz Adriano (above) became the first player to score
four before halftime – and at 17 minutes he now holds the competition
record for the quickest four-goal tally.
