There are a lot of football stars but some have never scored a single goal in champions league
1. Philipp Lahm
Sometimes dubbed ‘Mr. Perfect’ for his exquisite passing and ability to pick out a fellow team-mate, whether it’s from sixty yards from one end of the pitch to the other or from six yards, squeezing the ball in between two high-pressing midfielders, the German knows how to maneuver the ball where he wants and how he wants on a whim. For years he did it on international duty with the Germany senior team and he’s continuing to do it with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. However, one aspect of his club game that is severely lacking is his ability to score goals – particularly in the Champions League.
Okay, so he was a defender – his job was never really about scoring or helping out down the opposite end of the pitch but that doesn’t make his lack of UCL goals any less of a shock.
He might not have racked up as many appearances as some of the enigmatic names on this list, but Gael Clichy is still quite a famous name in world football and has 80 appearances at the Champions League level to his name.
Currently playing in this season's edition of the Champions League, 35-year-old defender Andrea Barzagli is yet another big name player who has so far failed to nab himself a goal in the most exciting club competition there is.
