The majority of the tough records in football history belong to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite the fact that both players are towards the conclusion of their careers, there are still a number of records they can break before hanging up their boots.
Paris Saint-Germain are currently in first place in Ligue 1 and are the clear favorites to win both the Coupe de France and the UEFA Champions League. Lionel Messi, on the other hand, holds the record for the most goals and assists for a single club, which he set during his time at Barcelona.
When Lionel Messi won the Ballon d’Or last month, he set a new milestone by becoming the first player to win seven Ballon d’Or honors in history. He has also won numerous individual prizes and holds the record for most trophies won by a single club (35 at Barcelona).
On the other hand, the UEFA Champions League is currently dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo. In the Champions League, the Portuguese winger has 135 goals and 42 assists, the most in the competition’s history.
Cristiano Ronaldo has only won five UEFA Champions League titles, and he needs one more to tie Gento for the most. Before he retires from football, he could break this record.
His current club will compete in the UEFA Champions League knockout stage, and the Portuguese winger has a chance to tie for the most goals in the competition’s history.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, has scored more goals and contributed more assists, indicating that they are two of the best players of all time.
Both players have had poor performances at the FIFA World Cup, as evidenced by their lack of major records.
Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are both superb free kick takers, but Juninho has the most direct free kick goals in the history of football.
This year, Messi will turn 35 and Cristiano Ronaldo will turn 37. Do you believe both players will be able to break additional records before they retire?
