FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi’s superb UEFA Champions League campaign is seeing him beating Cristiano Ronaldo to another competition record.
The Argentine netted his 11th UCL goal of the season in his side’s historical 6-1 comeback-win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday to advance 6-5 on aggregate.
In so doing, Messi cut his gap on his long-standing rival Ronaldo to just one goal, with the Portuguese only having netted twice in the Champions League during the current campaign so far.
Messi has now scored at least one goal in every UCL campaign since 2005/06, his last 12 season’s in the competition.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, had a slow start to his Champions League life and only netted in his fourth European season. As a consequence, the 32-year-old has currently scored in his last 11 UCL campaigns – one less than Messi.
