Sergio Ramos equals Gerard Piqué and Roberto Carlos in Champions League record books

Sevilla defender Sergio Ramos has tonight etched his name ever further into the history books of European football.

Ramos, and Sevilla, marked their return to action a short time ago.

Turning attentions back towards matters in the Champions League, Diego Alonso’s troops welcomed Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven to Andalusia, desperate for a return to winning ways.

When all was said and done, however, a remarkable collapse ultimately culminated in Sevilla surrendering a two-goal advantage, en route to a last-gasp defeat.

And yet, as alluded to above, an otherwise bitterly disappointing night nevertheless proved one to remember for a headline member of Alonso’s squad.

This comes after it was revealed that Sergio Ramos has secured for himself a place in the Champions League record books.

Owing to the game’s opener against PSV, the Spanish veteran – fresh off being shown his latest red card at the weekend – has joined iconic pair Gerard Piqué and Roberto Carlos as the top-scoring defender in the history of European football’s premier competition.
