The 2017/18 Champions League is drawing ever closer to it’s conclusion, with Liverpool and Real Madrid facing off in Kiev next Saturday. This years competition has been one of the most entertaining for some time, with goals, excitement and drama on offer throughout all stages. These games between Europe’s biggest clubs are usually expected to be pretty tight, close affairs but it’s been anything but. Liverpool have been one of the stories of the tournament and their gung-ho approach to the game really epitomises what it’s been like this year – with them setting a new record for goals scored (46 in 14 games).
That record has stood since the 1999/00 season when Barcelona hit 45 in 16 games, so for Liverpool to break it in two fewer games is some achievement. Their ability to score goals makes their final date with Real Madrid incredibly interesting, with Los Blancos going for their third straight title. No side has ever done that in the modern era of the Champions League so Zinedine Zidane will be desperate to write his name in even more CL history. It promises to be some occasion in Kiev and one would expect there to be plenty of goals.
Both of these sides have plenty of attacking threats and they’ve been the two of the biggest contributors when it comes to scoring goals in the tournament. With this in mind we’ve put together a quiz on this seasons knockout round. We want to see just how many goal scorers you can remember spanning from the round of sixteen right up to the end of semi-finals. There’s 77 answers in total and it really isn’t easy – so give it your best shot and tweet your scores into us @FootyAccums!
