Lionel Messi overtakes Cristiano Ronaldo to hold enviable record.Lionel Messi’s goal for PSG yesterday made his number of goals in club football 697. Cristiano Ronaldo has signed for a club in Asia. He scored 696 goals for European clubs. Messi broke that record in very few matches.
CR7 has come to Asia after leaving European football. Ronaldo holds the record for most goals for a club in Europe’s top five leagues so far. Which was broken yesterday by Argentina’s World Cup winning captain.
In terms of goals scored in Europe’s first five leagues, the number of goals alongside Messi is 697. PSG’s game was against Montpellier yesterday. Messi and Ronaldo had a combined total of 696 goals before going into that match. Messi surpassed Ronaldo by scoring the 14th goal of the season for PSG. 84 matches less than Ronaldo.
If Ronaldo does not return to European football in the future, he will stop at 696 in terms of scoring in the first five leagues there. Ronaldo scored 450 goals for Real Madrid, 145 for Manchester United and 101 for Juventus. 9 of these seasons Ronaldo and Messi were at the same time in Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively. Messi has won 42 and Ronaldo 34 major trophies in European football.
Messi recently hinted at retirement in an interview. In an interview with Urbana play, Argentina’s World Cup-winning captain said, “All my dreams have come true for the national team.” “Personally, I got everything in my career. Before starting the game, I never thought it would be possible. No complaints or regrets about where I got to. Can’t ask for more than that.”
“Won the Copa America, won the World Cup. There is nothing left. The full circle is also the end of my career.” This is the strong speculation of Messi, the 35-year-old Messi can say goodbye to international football. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe missed two penalties in PSG’s loss to Montpellier. He also had to leave the field during the game with a hamstring injury.
