In 1997, Trezeguet scored the fastest goal ever in terms of velocity in UEFA Champions League history in a quarter-final match against Manchester United. The shot that resulted in a goal was clocked at 97.76 mp/h (157.33 km/h). He also scored the 3000th goal in UEFA Champions League history by netting against Olympiacos in 2004.
