The end of the ‘Meho War’ between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, rivals of the century, is starting to show an end. While Ronaldo left for the Saudi Arabia League메이저놀이터, Messi is catching up little by little with Ronaldo’s record.
Messi scored the team’s third goal in the 40th minute of the 2022/23 season Ligue 1 round 31 home game against Lens held at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 16th (Korean time) and scored his team’s Paris Saint-Germain’s 3- 1 led to victory.
After exchanging one-two passes with Kylian Mbappe in the 40th minute when the team was leading 2-0, Messi split the net with a left-footed shot from inside the box. It was his 15th league goal and his 20th this season.
It was also a significant score. With this goal, Messi has scored the most goals in Europe’s five major leagues (England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France). He stood shoulder to shoulder with rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to Spain Marca, Messi has scored a total of 495 goals while playing in two leagues: Spanish La Liga and French Ligue 1. He scored 474 goals in La Liga and 21 in Ligue 1.
This equals Ronaldo’s 495 goals before leaving for Saudi Arabia Al Nasr. Ronaldo has scored 103 goals in the English Premier League, 311 goals in La Liga and 81 goals in Italian Serie A.
If Messi adds one more goal, he will be ranked first in the history of the top 5 European leagues.
After Ronaldo left for Al Nasr, goal-related records are gradually catching up with Messi.
Messi scored against Nice on the 9th to record 702 goals for European clubs, surpassing Ronaldo (701 goals). And with the score against Lens, it was further widened by 2 goals.
Marca said, “Messi surpassed Ronaldo just a week ago to become the all-time top scorer in European clubs. Now, wherever Messi goes, history continues to be made,” he said, adding that he will catch up with all of Ronaldo’s records.
