Barcelona defender Pique matches Puyol European record

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has matched Carles Puyol's record in Europe with his winner for the 1-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv.

They were Barcelona's best centre-back pairing in history, with Puyol teaching Pique what he knew.

Now Pique has 120 appearances in the Champions League for Barca, the same as Puyol. He will surpass him in the away trip to Kyiv most likely.

Pique is now battling Sergi Busquets, who has the fourth most with 122 appearances. Iniesta is third with 132, Xavi is first with 157 and Lionel Messi is second with 149.
