Barcelona join Real Madrid in 500 Champions League goal club

Luis Suarez’s first-half strike against Liverpool on Wednesday meant Barcelona have now reached 500 goals in the Champions League.

Suarez latched onto a cross from Jordi Alba to give Barca the lead in the first leg of the semi-final tie at Camp Nou.

Barcelona are now only the second team in Champions League history to reach the 500-goal milestone, behind their rivals Real Madrid.

The Blaugrana do have a way to go if they want to catch Los Blancos, who have scored 551 times in the Champions League.

Madrid have won more Champions League titles than any other team with seven, including the last three competitions.

Barca, on the other hand, have won the Champions League four times, but will have the opportunity to move closer to Madrid this season after the latter were knocked out of this year’s competition by Ajax at the last-16 stage.
