Raul's brace for Schalke in Wednesday's 3-1 win against Hapoel Tel-Aviv took him clear of Milan's Filippo Inzaghi as the leading scorer in UEFA club competition.
The adidas Predator wearer's personal haul now reaches 70, with 68 of those strikes coming in the Champions League. Two clinical finishes, one with either foot, sent the Arena AufSchalke into raptures as the former Real Madrid great scored his first European goals for the Bundesliga side.
Raul said: "I never imagined I would get so many goals in a competition like the Champions League, and even for me this is really special. I won the Champions League three times with Real Madrid, but today is a great day because I scored my first two Champions League goals for Schalke."
