UEFA Champions League

Real Madrid vs Olympiakos Piraeus

Striker Raul became the first player to score 50 goals in European football competition history when he led Real Madrid to a 2-1 win over Olympiakos Piraeus in their Champions League Group F match on Wednesday.

Raul headed home a beautifully flighted cross from David Beckham in the ninth minute to beat the record of 49 goals established by their former striker Alfredo Di Stefano in 1964.
