Liverpool and Real Madrid both have one boot in the quarter-finals thanks to victories Wednesday in the Champions League last-16, and with nine goals between the two fixtures, there were plenty of stunning statistics.
Here's a glance at some notable numbers from an exciting European soiree:
1: Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the first player to score 100 Champions League goals for one club. Lionel Messi is on 97 for Barcelona.
2: Roberto Firmino's seven Champions League goals equal Steven Gerrard's Liverpool club-record for tallies in one continental campaign.
3: Sadio Mane's hat-trick was the first treble scored by a Senegalese player in Champions League history.
