Liverpool and Real Madrid meet in a heavyweight Champions League match on Wednesday with their star strikers going through contrasting fortunes in front of goal.
Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is two goals away from the Champions League group-stage scoring record of 71 goals held by Raul Gonzalez, another attacking great who wore the white shirt of the Spanish giants.
Ronaldo has scored in both of Madrid's wins so far in Group B and has established the best-ever scoring start to a Spanish league season with 15 goals through the first eight rounds.
By contrast, Mario Balotelli has netted just once in nine games in all competitions for Liverpool since his move from AC Milan in August, with the Italy striker's overall contribution to the team also being widely criticized.
Liverpool has a win and a loss from its first two games but is a club that thrives on big European nights at Anfield — and it doesn't come any bigger than the visit of the reigning 10-time champions.
Bulgarian newcomer Ludogorets Razgrad hosts FC Basel in the other Group B match.
Here are some things to know about Wednesday's games:
CLOSING ON RAUL
If Ronaldo is to match — or surpass — Raul's haul of Champions League goals on Wednesday, he'll have to end his scoring drought at Anfield.
In five matches there while playing for Manchester United, Ronaldo never found the net.
