What can it do yet
• Hegerberg tops the list of all-time UEFA Women's Champions League goalscorers, reaching 50 European goals faster than any other woman or man. In the men's competition, it seems likely that he will establish a leadership similar to the one held by Cristiano Ronaldo with an unattainable century.

Barcelona. There's still plenty of time to add more, even if another personal victory in August 2020#39 was thwarted by his injury.
