Add this to the semi-finals victory against Olympique Lyonnais and you can say you have a team worth watching.
Another target within Shevchenko’s lead is the overall record for goals scored in the UEFA club competition.
The player that got closest to Shevchenko is Barcelona’s star Ronaldinho with 7 goals on this 2005-06 UEFA Champions League tournament.
AC Milan was the only UEFA Champions League semi-finalist to win on their return to home action on the Serie A during the weekend as they scored 4 goals against AC Chievo Verona. He already equaled the mark set by SL Benefica’s legend Eusebio, and he stands just 6 goals short of the mark set by Gerd Muller.
He currently has a record of 9 goals in the current UEFA Champions League Campaign, this is closer than anybody has gotten to break Ruud Van Nistelrooij’s record of 12 so basically with the three matches left; he only needs a goal a game to tie the standing record.
But this pass to the finals does not only present an opportunity for the team on the UEFA Champions League but to its star Andriy Shevchenko, he is granted the chance to break a goal scoring record.
