UCL: UEFA releases Champions League all-time top scorers [Top 10]

UEFA, on Wednesday night, revealed Champions League all-time top scorers.

The Europe football governing body released a list of the top ten all-time highest goal scorers in a post via its Twitter handle following the completion of this season’s quarter-final first-leg fixtures on Wednesday.

Recall that Real Madrid defeated Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, thanks to Karim Benzema’s hat-trick, while Villarreal won 1-0 against Bayern Munich.

Benzema’s three goals against Chelsea mean the France international has now scored 82 Champions League goals in this career so far.

The 34-year-old is just three goals behind third-placed Robert Lewandowski in the latest rankings released by UEFA.

Below is the top ten UEFA’s all-time top scorers:

1. Cristiano Ronaldo – 140
2. Lionel Messi – 125
3. Robert Lewandowski – 85
4. Karim Benzema – 82
5. Raul Gonzalez – 71
