His two goals against Olympiacos in the 2019/20 group stage saw him hit the 20-goal mark in just his 24th game in the competition. He broke the record with a few games to spare, given that the previous mark to hit was 26 games, set by Juventus star Alessandro Del Piero in 1998 UEFA Champions league. After 21 years he broke the unbreakable. Kane’s record is even more impressive, when you compare it with GOATs like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's not as if Kane faced easier oppositions either, having scored against the giants like Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus on his way to achieve this milestone.
