Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has equalled an impressive UEFA Champions League record held by Lionel Messi, and also joined an illustrious club of goalscorers on Tuesday night.
Click through the gallery above to see the six players who have scored more than 40 UCL goals for one club.
The Frenchman has struggled to find the back of the net in La Liga this season, netting just once in eight appearances so far this.
However, Benzema scored a brace in his side's 6-0 thumping of APOEL on Tuesday night, taking his tally to 53 strikes in the competition.
The 29-year-old has now scored in 13 successive Champions League seasons, a record matched only by FC Barcelona's Messi, as Benzema pointed out via an Instagram Story on his personal account.
The French attacker scored his first goal in the competition in the 2005/06 campaign for Olympique Lyon, and added 11 more in the following three seasons for the French side before joining Real in 2009.
He has since scored 41 Champions League goals for Los Blancos, joining an exclusive club of players who have scored more than 40 times for a single club in the European competition, as pointed out by Sky Sports.
Ronaldo is the top goalscorer for a single club in Champions League history, having netted 98 times in the tournament for Real. In addition, he scored 15 UCL goals for Manchester United, but his first goal came only in 2006/07. This means the Portuguese has now scored in each of his past 12 seasons in the competition.
