The Brazilian was sharp out of the blocks in his second Champions League match taking just 92 seconds to open the scoring against Tottenham, a new best.

Philippe Coutinho continues to carve out his place in the Barcelona history books, just ten months into his career with the Catalan club, scoring the fastest goal in the Champions League away from home.

It may not be the most treasured of accolades but that won't bother the former Liverpool star who put his new side a goal up on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Wednesday evening, taking just 92 seconds to do so. A great run from Jordi Alba drew Hugo Lloris far from his line and although there were several covering defenders, the Brazilian picked his spot perfectly from the edge of the area.

The honour of the overall fastest Champions League goal for Barça remains with Mark van Bommel, currently the manager of PSV. His speedy goal at the Camp Nou came against Panathinaikos in the 2005/06 season, timed at just 43 seconds.
