Harry Kane scored his 15th Champions League goal in Wednesday night’s draw with Olympiacos. The England striker scored from the penalty spot to score his 15th goal in his 20th game in the Champions League.
This makes Kane the third-fastest player to reach this tally in the history of the Champions League, according to Opta Stats. And one ex-Tottenham Hotspur player is ahead of him on this list. Roberto Soldado took one less game than Kane to score 15 goals.
Soldado scored his goals for Real Madrid and Valencia. It took the Spanish striker just 19 games to get to 15 goals – one less than Kane. Ruud van Nistelrooy – formerly of Manchester United – also scored 15 goals in his first 19 games.
Kane has achieved this tally with all his goals coming for Tottenham. The 26-year-old is Tottenham’s top scorer in European competitions now and he is doing it in quick time.
Kane’s penalty against Olympiacos was clinical and gave Jose Sa no chance to make a save. Kane will be hoping to add to this tally in the upcoming Champions League games. After Tottenham’s draw, Kane will be hoping his goals get Spurs back to winning ways.
This stat illustrates just how impressive the local lad has been for Spurs. His tally beats some big names. It also shows just how good Soldado was – before he joined Tottenham.
