Messi Leaps Over Cristiano Ronaldo In Key Stat to Keep Rivalry Alive

The rivalry between Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is nearing its end with both players in their mid-to-late 30s, but it’s not going down without the two fighting for one record.

When Messi scored in PSG’s 2-0 victory over OGC Nice on Saturday at the Allianz Riviera, the 35-year-old leaped over his old rival as the Argentine scored goal No. 702 at the club level.

Messi’s goal has him becoming the all-time goal-scoring leader at the club level, with Ronaldo behind him at 701 goals. As a result, these two will fight for the remainder of their careers to see who ends up on the list.

Ronaldo can fatten his stats now that he’s playing with Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia; meanwhile, Messi reportedly at least wants to remain another year in Europe. However, MLS might be the destination after the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner’s career and perhaps he can take advantage of the league’s defending.

While both players are no longer facing off against each other as they once did in La Liga, the competition between the two legends is still as strong as ever.
