The Most Prolific Player In Europe Revealed

The Most Prolific Player In Europe Revealed

Radamel Falcao played a starring role as Monaco advanced to the semi-finals of the Champions League last night.

Having won the first leg 3-2 in Dortmund, Leonardo Jardim's side were 2-0 up and cruising thanks to goals from wonderkid Kylian Mbappe and Falcao, before Marco Reus reduced the deficit just after half-time.

But Valere Germain made an instant impact when he entered the fray, scoring 22 seconds after stepping onto the pitch.

Both Mbappe and Falcao reached impressive statistics with their respective strikes in the first half.

Mbappe's early effort against Dortmund means he is now the first player in history to score in his first four Champions League knockout games, having scored in the first leg against BVB and both legs of Monaco's round of 16 tie with Manchester City.

And his partner in crime, Radamel Falcao, has scored 24 goals in 32 appearances this season.

But this particular goal, a powerful header from a Thomas Lemar cross, means he is now the most prolific goalscorer of all-time when it comes to UEFA club competitions.

On top of that, Falcao added another impressive statistic to his ever-growing collection.

Staggeringly, he has scored against 22 out of the 24 teams he has come up against in European club competition. Sevilla and Tottenham are the only two sides he has not scored against.

It didn't work out for Falcao in the Premier League with Manchester United and Chelsea, but he's well and truly tore it up with Porto, Atletico Madrid and now Champions League semi-finalists Monaco.
