Liverpool vs Besiktas 2007

Liverpool became 1st team in the history of the Champions League to score 8 goals in UCL. That year Liverpool was on the song they had a magnificent team. The Reds scored 8 past Turkish side Besiktas that year. 

Yossi Benayoun scored three of Liverpool’s eight goals in this victory, becoming the first and, so far, the only Israeli player to achieve a triple in Europe’s premier club tournament. Two Peter Crouch strikes bookended another six goals for the Reds.

Another interesting fact about this match is that 6 out of 8 goals of  Liverpool came in the second half. Thus Liverpool became the first team in UCL to score 6 goals after halftime.

Another big win in the history of the Champions League came in 2015 when Real Madrid came up against Malmo in the group stage. Madrid 8-0 the win came under Rafa Benitez who coincidentally was coach of Liverpool when they had their 8-0 win against Besiktas. 

This game in UCL was recorded in the history books of UCL for another reason. In this, it was the first time that 2 players scored a hat trick in the same game. Cristiano Ronaldo scored 4 goals while Karim Benzema scored his hat trick.

For that third spot on our list, we had many games wherein there were few 7-0 score lines. From those, we pick Barcelona’s game against Celtic in 2016.  Barcelona in the group stage decided to put on a show for their own fans at Camp Nou. Barcelona scored 7 past Celtic that night.  Another reason for that night being special was MSN, the deadly trio of Barca, was on fire that night. 

Messi opened the scoring just 3 minutes from kickoff. Celtic too had few chances on the night but Marc Ter Stegen was on a completely different level that night. By halftime, Barcelona was 2-0. But in the second half, Neymar just changed the course of the game; he assisted 4 goals and himself scored one goal that night. Camp Nou witnessed one of the historic nights in UCL in 2016.
