Find out this young Brazilian who has now scored in every stage of UEFA Champions League!

UEFA Champions League 2022/23 has reached the last 16 stages and Leg 1 of each of the 8 matches have been completed. Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, SL Benfica, Napoli and Inter Milan have come out victorious in their respective 1st Legs but there is still a lot to play for in the returning legs.

Surprisingly, each of the 4 English participants (Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur) have lost their matches. From Liverpool’s perspective, they will need a miracle to turn around a 5-2 aggregate at Santiago Bernabeau.

Manchester City will welcome RB Leipzig at the Etihad Stadium with the score line locked at 1-1. Chelsea and Spurs will host Dortmund & AC Milan as both the English sides will aim to turn around a 1-0 lead by the traveling teams.

Before we find out the results, there is a record that you must know of.

It is set by Real Madrid’s Brazilian winger Vinicius Jr. after scoring twice against Liverpool at Anfield earlier this week. The 22-year-old has now become the youngest footballer in UCL history to score in each and every stage of the elite European club competition.

  • Group Stages – November 2019 Vs Club Brugge
  • Round of 16 – February 2023 Vs Liverpool
  • Quarter-final: vs Liverpool, April 2021
  • Semi-final: vs Manchester City, April 2022
  • Final: vs Liverpool, May 2022

Since making his senior UCL debut for Real Madrid in 2018 against Viktoria Plzen, Vini Jr. has assisted as well as scored 14 goals in 41 outings. He was a crucial part of the Los Blancos last year as they stretched their UEFA Champions League wins to 14 titles since the inception of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Madrid’s next 2 matches will see them tussle against cross town rivals Atletico Madrid tomorrow (La Liga) and their fiercest opposition FC Barcelona for a Copa Del Rey semi-final “El-Classico”.
