What Champions League record can this PSG striker break tonight?

Zlatan PSG

Zlatan Ibrahimovic stands on the cusp of history after scoring in six successive games in Europe's elite competition ahead of Bayer Leverkusen clash.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic's stock took the slightest of nosedives when his Twitter account revealed some bizarre messages featuring the #DareToZlatan hashtag.

But the Swede will be hoping he can restore some doubters over his social media car-crash when he does what he knows best on Wednesday night, by taking to a football pitch and strutting his stuff.

Ibrahimovic will also be hoping to secure a Champions League record this evening by notching his seventh consecutive strike at home to Bayer Leverkusen, after helping to put the German side to the sword in their own back yard three weeks ago in a 4-0 trouncing.

Ibrahimovic also registered twice against Benfica and Anderlecht and once in the 2-1 home win over Olympiakos during the group stages of the competition and will now be aiming to achieve what no other has this evening with his seventh.

Only three players have scored six in succession in the history of the competition, with Real Madrid sensation Cristiano Ronaldo and Galatasaray's Burak Yilmaz achieving the feat in the 2012/2013 campaign.

Marouane Chamakh also surprisingly features on the list after top-scoring in Bordeaux's 2009/2010 European adventure.

Can Ibrahimovic smash the record?
