Barca equal West Ham Euro record

Champions League favourites Barcelona last night equalled a 30-year-old European record previously held exclusively by West Ham United.

Having beaten Milan 3-2 in last night's Champions League Group H clash, the Spanish giants scored for a 27th successive European fixture - thereby equalling the record set in 1980 by John Lyall's West Ham.

The Hammers went an incredible 16 years without failing to score in a European tie - a period that stretched from 1964 to November 1980, when United's run finally ended with a 1-0 defeat away to Romanian side Poli Timisoara.

Barcelona will beat West Ham's record on 6th December should they avoid a stalemate against Belarusian champions BATE at the Nou Camp in their next Champion's League fixture.
