Bayern München icon Thomas Müller is the newest member of the UEFA Champions League 50-goal club after reaching his half-century in the German side's group stage match against Barcelona – his favourite European opponents.

Though the 32-year-old is joint-seventh on the all-time list in the competition, he is the highest-ranked player to score all his goals for one club. Lionel Messi had scored all 120 of his Champions League goals for Barcelona before moving to Paris this summer and breaking his streak on Matchday 2.

Müller's first goal in the competition came in Bayern's famous 7-1 round of 16 success against Sporting CP in the 2008/09 round of 16 – UEFA.com pores over the numbers as he reaches his half-century more than 12 years later.
