Messi’s record over Cristiano: The all-time top goalscorer in the top-five major leagues

Lionel Messi added a new record to his resume this Saturday, which is that of being the top scorer in the history of the top-five major leagues. With the goal scored on Saturday against Lens, PSG‘s Argentine reaches 495 goals, exactly the same as Cristiano Ronaldo before leaving for Saudi Arabia.

That goal (his 15th in Ligue 1) brings Messi‘s tally to 21 in his two seasons in Ligue 1, while he scored 474 in LaLiga Santander with Barcelona. For his part, Cristiano has those 495 goals distributed as follows: 84 in his first stint at Manchester United; 311 at Real Madrid; 81 at Juventus; and 19 in his second stint at United.

Just a week earlier, Messi also became the all-time leading scorer at club level in Europe with 702 goals. Now, with his latest goal, he has 703 in all competitions at club level in Europe. Cristiano, in Europe, scored 701 goals in all competitions.

Leo continues to make history wherever he is.
