Robert Lewandowski became the third player in history to reach 100 goals in UEFA competitions by scoring against Antwerp on Tuesday night.
The Barcelona striker has followed in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo [145 goals] and Lionel Messi [132 goals] after banging in against the Belgian side.
Lewandowski achieved the feat in his 139th European fixture – scoring Barca’s second in their 5-0 romp over Antwerp in their Champions League group stage opener.
To break the 35-year-old’s goals down, he found the back of the net on six occasions for Lech Poznan.
He then banged in 18 goals for Borussia Dortmund before firing in 69 times for Bayern Munich, with his last seven strikes coming for the Blaugrana.
In total, 92 of Lewandowski’s goals have come in Europe’s premier competition, with two coming in the Europa League and three in the UEFA Cup.
In addition to that, he has found the back of the net twice in Europa League qualifiers, as well once in a UEFA Cup qualifier.
But not wanting to be upstaged by the Poland international, five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo proceeded to set a new football record on Tuesday night.
While he didn’t score in Al Nassr’s 2-0 AFC Champions League opening win against Iranian outfit Persepolis, he reached another mpressive milestone.
Ronaldo has now gone 1,000 games unbeaten throughout his club and international career.
Since making his debut at Sporting Lisbon in 2022, the 38-year-old has won 776 matches, while drawing 224 times.
In an Instagram message following the win, he said: “Great to get the win today!
“A very special thank you to the fans and to all the Iranian people who have made this visit so special for us.
“Such an incredibly warm welcome!”
The ex-Manchester United forward has enjoyed a brilliant start to the new season – chipping in with seven goals and five assists in seven games in all competitions.
