Ramos makes Champions League history
The former Spain international put Sevilla ahead after Ivan Rakitic found him with a brilliant ball from a set piece.
It was Ramos’ first goal since he rejoined Sevilla last summer. But more importantly, it was the 10,000th goal in Champions League history.
Ramos’ goal comes 31 years and four days after former Super Eagles star Daniel Amokachi scored the first goal in the prestigious competition.
History making Amokachi in the Champions League
Amokachi scored the first goal since the competition was renamed the Champions League. The ex-Everton man scored the only goal as Club Brugge defeated CSKA Moscow.
Meanwhile, Ramos not only scored the 10,000th goal in Champions League history but also joined Roberto Carlos and Gerard Pique as the highest-scoring defenders in the competition history (16).
The former Real Madrid star also became the fourth oldest player to score a Champions League goal at 37 years, and 244 days old.
