Gerard Pique surpasses Sergio Ramos to make Champions League history

Barcelona center-back Gerard Pique has made history with his latest goal for Barcelona.

The Spain international was on target on Wednesday night, scoring the game-winning goal in a must-win clash for Barcelona in the Champions League.

The Catalans saw off Dynamo Kyiv thanks to Gerard Pique's goal from a Jordi Alba’s inch-perfect cross.

And that goal put Pique to the top of a certain list, namely the highest scoring Champions League defenders list.

No other defender has scored more goals in the Champions League, with 16 goals, after that goal.

That’s the same as former Real Madrid defender Roberto Carlos, who also managed that total, meaning Pique is one goal away from being the standalone leader.

Third on the list is another former Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos, who looks as though he might struggle to catch up with Pique having fallen behind due to injury issues.

Sergio Ramos is yet to play for Paris Saint-Germain since joining in the summer.
