BARRIO – Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be able to stop Lionel Messi breaking his phenomenal Champions League record this season. Ronaldo tops the all-time goal scorer chart in the competition with 141 goals in 185 games.
But Messi is hot on Ronaldo’s heels with 125 goals in 156 appearances in the competition.
Just 15 goals stand between the football gods – and Messi has the perfect opportunity to close the gap this season as Ronaldo won’t be participating in the Champions League as it stands.
Ronaldo’s current team United failed to qualify for the tournament last season – leaving Messi to run it up with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentine will have 13 games to usurp Ronaldo’s record if PSG reach the final.
Although the Parisians only managed to reach the last 16 in the previous campaign with Messi contributing five goals along the way.
BUT Ronaldo has made it clear that he wants to leave Old Trafford to play in the Champions League.
However, finding a new club has proved difficult for Ronaldo as no club seem to be interested in taking him on.
