Cristiano Ronaldo And Neymar Help Set Champions League Group Stage Goals Record

Paris Saint-Germain were the most prolific, world-record signing Neymar on target six times as they hit the net on 25 occasions.

The Champions League group stage saw more goals in 2017-18 than in any previous season in the history of the competition, with 306 scored in total.

Paris Saint-Germain were the most prolific, world-record signing Neymar on target six times as they hit the net on 25 occasions, while Liverpool managed 23 thanks in part to the 7-0 thrashings of Maribor and Spartak Moscow.

Group H runners-up Real Madrid notched 17 as Cristiano Ronaldo made history by becoming the first player to score in all six first-phase games, while Harry Kane hit six for the section's winners Tottenham.

Matchday six goalfests including Porto's 5-2 thumping of last season's semi-finalists Monaco and Madrid's 3-2 victory over Borussia Dortmund ensured a new record was set.
