Six years on from his last appearance in the Champions League and Radamel Falcao finally made his return on Wednesday night.
March 2010 was when the Colombian striker last played in Europe's elite competition, during a 5-0 defeat for Porto to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Since then, he's joined Atletico Madrid, moved to Monaco for €60 million, left on loan to Manchester United, then to Chelsea and since returned to the Ligue 1 side as captain.

When he lined up to face Tottenham at Wembley, then, expectation was high.
Indeed, prior to the clash, Monaco teammate Joao Moutinho insisted the 30-year-old is starting to show signs of his previous scintillating form.

He said, per the Mirror: "It's true that he probably didn't have his greatest spell in football while he was here, but he was injured a lot of the time so didn't manage a lot of minutes on the field.
"The Falcao that I'm seeing right at the moment is a Falcao that's really determined and working very hard, and in a good moment with how he's playing.
"Let's hope he puts in a good performance, maybe scores a goal or creates a couple of assists, that'd be great. Certainly the Falcao we're seeing now is on form."
His performance against Mauricio Pochettino's side suggests otherwise, though.
Despite Monaco emerging as 2-1 victors, Falcao made very little impact throughout his 81-minute stint and might have faced more backlash had Bernardo Silva and Thomas Lemar not secured all three points.
Falcao reminded fans of just how far he has fallen in the 68th minute. From Djibril Sidibe's cross, the Colombia attempted to direct his header at goal but instead watched it soar high and wide.
So, how did fans react to his first Champions League performance in six years? Well, the general consensus appears to be that he's still terrible.
Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim firmly believes Falcao is capable of rediscovering the form that saw him become one of football's greatest strikers at Atletico.
"I'm convinced Falcao will get back to the level we saw him playing at Porto and Atletico Madrid," he said.
"Certainly the work he is putting in to achieve this bodes well for the future and he is certainly striving hard to get back to how he was playing."
Good luck with that one, Leonardo.
