The Champions League - quite possibly the greatest club tournament on the planet - returned with all its traditional glitz and glamour recently, with last night's ties completing the last 16 first legs.

As usual with this particular tournament, there have been thrills, spills, goals and controversy a plenty - with several games seemingly already decided and many poised on a knife-edge going into the deciders.

Wednesday night's clashes were poles apart, with Turkish champions Galatasaray and Premier League leaders battling to a 1-1 draw in Istanbul and Real Madrid outlining their superiority with a devastating 6-1 mauling of Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 at the Veltins-Arena.

The latter game - with it's hatful of wonderful goals - got us thinking here at GMS, at this stage of the tournament, who are this season's top scorers in the Champions League?
