According to UEFA.com, the Catalan centre back's strike against AS Roma was the 12th goal of his career in the competition, taking him to joint third in the all-time list.

The former Manchester United defender, who overtook Ramos' Champions League tally by one, has now gone level with Paris Saint-Germain star Dani Alves, once a former teammate of his.

Pique's goal was his first in this UCL campaign, and also his first since matchday two last season, when he helped the Blaugrana overcome Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 away in Germany.

The 31-year-old now finds himself four strikes behind the all-time highest scoring defender in the competition Roberto Carlos, and three behind Los Blancos legend Ivan Helguera, who is in second place.

Pique has made 437 appearances for Barcelona so far in his career, scoring 38 goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
