UEFA Champions League

Only Four Players Have Scored In All Of Their First Five UEFA Champions League Appearances

Since the establishment of the UEFA Champions League, a slew of new records have been set, with many more being broken by top-tier players. While Cristiano Ronaldo holds the most UEFA Champions League records, there is one mark that only four players have achieved.

Matchday 5 of the UEFA Champions League has been thrilling so far, with some outstanding performances from the teams who have competed. Twenty goals were scored in yesterday's games, and five goals have already been scored in the first two games today.

Today, the Ajax striker added his name to the list of players who have scored in each of their first five Champions League matches. As of now, only four players have managed to break this record.

1. Alessandro Del Piero

Del Piero, or "Magic" as he was known, was one of Juventus' most famous players. During his stint with the Old Ladies, he scored 290 goals in 750 matches. He scored his first UEFA Champions League goal in 1995, but he scored five times in his first five games for Juventus in 1997.

2. Diego Costa

During his stint at Chelsea, the Brazilian striker was a goal machine. With two goals against Austria Wein, he made his UEFA Champions League debut for Atlético Madrid, and the rest is history. In 2014, he broke the record when he scored two goals against AC Milan to make it seven goals in his first five UEFA Champions League appearances.

3. Erling Haaland

The Norwegian star player is one of the few young stars who has swept the football world by storm. Last season, he made history by being the first player to score eight goals in his first five UEFA Champions League appearances for Borussia Dortmund.

4. Sebastian Haller

Former Newcastle United striker Wayne Rooney is currently enjoying his time with Ajax. He has been one of the finest strikers in the Champions League this season with the Holland team. His goal against Besiktas today made him the fourth player in the UEFA Champions League to score in their first five outings.
