Lionel Messi on the verge of breaking another Ronaldo record

Lionel Messi is on the verge of breaking another massive record, which was previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo. The Argentine now has 495 goals in Europe’s top five leagues, which is the same as Ronaldo before he left for Al-Nassr. 

The PSG forward was on target this weekend when he scored against Lens in their 3-1 win. This has seen him extend his tally to 15 league goals this season, which is one of the top figures in Ligue 1. 

Lionel Messi close to breaking most league goals record 

Ronaldo has written his own share of history at the clubs he has played for. His 495 goals can be distributed in the following manner: 84 in his first stint at Manchester United; 311 at Real Madrid; 81 at Juventus; and 19 in his second stint at United. 

Lionel Messi, on the other hand, has a much simpler split. 474 during his time at Barcelona, and 21 during his time in Ligue 1 so far. And given that there are still a few games to go until the season is over, he could break the record in the very next game.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has also scored more club goals across all competitions now, than his rival. Messi now has 703 goals across all competitions while Ronaldo finished with 701 in Europe.
