Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to pass the 500 goal mark and equalled an all-time club record as Real Madrid beat Malmo 2-0 in the Champions League.
The Portugal international, who had drawn blanks against Granada, Athletic Club and Malaga in recent weeks, finally hit the milestone in the 29th minute of Wednesday's Group A clash when he latched onto a fine pass from Isco.
And he doubled his tally to equal Raul's all-time record of 323 goals for the club, diverting home Lucas Vazquez's right-wing cross in the final minute of the match.
Madrid were in complete control of the game and Ronaldo could have scored twice before finally getting his second, with Malmo goalkeeper Johan Wiland making two excellent saves to keep him at bay.
The victory means Madrid have won both of their Group A matches, a record matched by Paris St-Germain, who were 3-0 winners at Shakhtar Donetsk.
Serge Aurier headed PSG's opener in the seventh minute at Lviv Arena, and the Ivory Coast right-back served up a corner kick for David Luiz to make it 2-0 in the 23rd minute.
PSG sealed victory when Zlatan Ibrahimovic unleashed a shot that ricocheted off Shakhtar captain Darijo Srna and flew into the net in the 90th minute.
Seydou Doumbia scored twice as CSKA Moscow held off a second-half comeback by PSV Eindhoven to win 3-2 in their Group B match.
CSKA led 3-0 at half-time thanks to Ahmed Musa's seventh-minute opener and goals from Doumbia, who scored with a looping header in the 21st minute and from the penalty spot 15 minutes later after PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet brought down Zoran Tosic.
Doumbia could have completed a hat-trick in the Group B match but missed another penalty shortly before the interval.
PSV rallied after the break, with Maxime Lestienne scoring from close range on 60 minutes and firing in a second goal eight minutes later but they could not complete the comeback.
In Group C, FC Astana became the first club from Kazakhstan to win a Champions League point with a 2-2 draw against Galatasaray.
The Turkish side led until the 77th minute through Bilal Kisa's long-range goal before a string of defensive blunders decided the game.
First, Astana drew level at 1-1 when Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera palmed Junior Kabananga's cross into defender Hakan Balta, who watched with horror as the ball bounced off him and into his own net.
Galatasaray retook the lead nine minutes later when Astana goalkeeper Nenad Eric fumbled a cross from Sinan Gumus and it bounced over the goal line.
Astana's 89th-minute equalizer came when Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera punched the ball out to Astana's Roger Canas, who headed in.
The other game in the group saw Benfica come from behind to surprise Atletico Madrid.
Angel Correa put the hosts ahead from inside the area in the 23rd minute after a neat exchange of passes between Juan Fran and Antoine Griezmann, but Nicolas Gaitan equalized with a left-footed shot in the 36th and Goncalo Guedes put the Portuguese champions ahead after a fast break in the 51st.
Juventus put their miserable domestic form behind them to defeat Sevilla 2-0 in Group D thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata and Simone Zaza, and an excellent debut showing from Sami Khedira.
Morata - who equalled club great Alessandro Del Piero's record of scoring five goals in five consecutive Champions League matches - headed an excellent Andrea Barzagli cross past the helpless Sergio Rico on 41 minutes, before substitute Zaza doubled Juve's lead with a late breakaway goal in the 87th minute.
