Fifteen UEFA Champions League ties over the years have reached the heights of 11 goals, but among them two stand tallest.

In 2018, Liverpool and Roma conjured up 13 between them in a semi-final thriller edged by the Reds. The total matched the record for a two-legged Champions League tie set nine years previously by Bayern and Sporting CP – although that was a considerably more one-sided contest.
