Top five Champions League goalscorers of all time
With the Champions League hosting some of the biggest teams and players since 1992, records are being broken every year.
The pinnacle of club football, dominating on Europe's biggest stage is a sure-fire way to etch yourself into folklore.
LiveScore look at the competition's all-time leading goalscorers to see which star has shone the brightest.
5. Raul (71 goals)
Real Madrid and Spain legend Raul sat comfortably at the top of the scorers' table with 71 goals when he retired.
But in recent years the Spaniard has been knocked down to fifth on the list, most recently by Frenchman and fellow Los Blancos star Karim Benzema.
Raul had a highly-decorated career, winning the Champions League three times with his hometown club and being named the illustrious competition's top scorer twice.
4. Karim Benzema (89 goals)
Benzema is the fourth-highest scorer in Europe's top club football competition and another strike in the second-leg victory over Liverpool has him edging closer to the top three.
Now 35, the Frenchman scored for Lyon on his tournament debut when he was just 17 years old.
His goals have helped Real be crowned European champions five times during his time at the Bernabeu but, with three prolific marksmen ahead of him, Benzema may not retire on the podium in this contest.
3. Robert Lewandowski (91 goals)
Bayern Munich great Robert Lewandowski reached the 80-goal mark in record time after taking just 100 games — two fewer than the next man on this list.
The Pole's 15 goals in the 2019-2020 edition saw him take the Golden Boot and lead his side to the title.
But he will not have a chance to close in on his century with Barcelona failing to reach the knockout stage this season.
2. Lionel Messi (129 goals)
Argentine maestro Lionel Messi has graced the Champions League plenty of times since 2005 and is third in the all-time appearances list.
Spending the majority of his career playing for his childhood team Barca, he has racked up a century of goals and lifted the famous trophy four times.
And he has kept up his exploits at Paris Saint-Germain but has not yet been able to end the French outfit's wait for continental success.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo (140 goals)
Cristiano Ronaldo is an undisputed goalscoring machine.
The Portuguese international has netted 140 times for three clubs, with the majority coming during his time at Real.
Ronaldo has appeared in 183 games in the competition since debuting for Manchester United in 2003.
With four Champions League titles under his belt from his time at Madrid and another from the Red Devils, the striker is one of the most decorated players ever.
Ex-Juventus star Ronaldo, 38, also became the first-ever player to score in two finals for two different winning teams — bagging the opener for United in 2008 and a 120th-minute penalty for Real in 2014.
