Messi overtakes Ronaldo for club goals scored in Europe.



Every football goal-scoring record chart seems to have either Ronaldo or Messi at the top of it and this record is certainly no different as the two legends sit at the peak of the chart but this time it is the Argentine legend who has just surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo as he netted his 702nd goal of his club career, taking him one above Ronaldo in 105 fewer games than the Portuguese forward.


After Ronaldo’s move to Al-Nassr in January, his European goal count halted at 701 for clubs in Europe, scoring 450 for Real Madrid, 145 across two different spells for Manchester United, 101 for Juventus and 5 goals for Sporting CP. Ronaldo spent nine years in Real Madrid and smashed every goal scoring record at the club by scoring 450 times in just 438 matches before going on to score 101 tomes for Juventus across three seasons.


Lionel Messi is not just the highest goal scorer in Barcelona’s history but his goal tally of 672 for the Spanish club is more than the second, third and fourth highest all combined and is also the record number of goals scored by any player for a single club. After his move to PSG in 2021, he’s gone on to score 30 goals for the French club helping him to surpass Ronaldo’s record of club goals scored in Europe.
