PSG won 3-1 against Lens in the League One match on Saturday (April 15). Messi scored the third and last goal for the Parisians in the match. The Argentine superstar has entered the record book by scoring this goal. No player in Europe’s top five leagues has scored more goals than Messi. However, his biggest rival Ronaldo is next to Messi in this record. Both of them have scored 495 goals in the top five leagues.
Before the match against Lens, Messi was number two on the list with 494 goals. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner could have taken the record single-handedly if he scored a pair of goals. But soon, Messi is getting the opportunity to take this record alone. Since leaving Europe and joining Al Nasr in Saudi Arabia in December, Ronaldo has no more opportunities to score more goals. But Messi has a chance to break the record and take himself out of reach.
According to the UEFA ranking, the top five leagues in Europe are the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and League One. Ronaldo has been lucky enough to play in all three leagues. He scored 119 goals in two matches in the Premier League. Scored 311 goals in Real Madrid jersey and 81 goals in four seasons for Juventus.
Messi has played in 2 leagues so far in his career. Scored 474 goals in 17 seasons for Barcelona. Then joined PSG in 2021 and scored 21 goals in 52 matches.
Earlier, Messi surpassed Ronaldo in scoring goals in European club football. Ronaldo scored 701 goals in all competitions. On the other hand, Messi’s goal number is 703.
