The fastest goals in UEFA Champions League history

Click here for our UEFA Champions League stats & facts homepage!

The UEFA Champions League is arguably the highest level of club football anywhere in the world and is based upon and reliant on a complex and sophisticated style of football with tactical innovation all with one aim: seeking control of a match which involves high-speed collisions and random occurrences.

The beauty of football is that despite the desire and seeming need for control within the match, it still throws up a chaotic energy that is capable of seeing goals, such a precious and rare thing in the overall scheme of a game, scored within a quarter of a minute or less of kick-off.

This is a list of the fastest ever goals in the history of the UEFA Champions League…

Only one of the five fastest goals in UEFA Champions League history happened in the knockout stage and it was indeed the fastest when Roy Makaay notched for Bayern against Real Madrid. Bayern Munich went on to win the two-legged last 16 tie before being knocked out by eventual winners AC Milan in the quarter-final.
