 Three Cristiano Ronaldo’s records Messi can never break

For more than ten years, lovers of the round leather game have been enthralled with the rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the world of football. Although both have an incredible array of records and accomplishments between them, some of Ronaldo’s achievements stand out as seemingly unbeatable by Messi. Let’s explore some of Ronaldo’s records from his legendary career that Messi might find difficult to break.

Most goals in a single UEFA Champions League season 

In addition to being the highest goal scorer in UCL history with 140 goals in 183 games, Cristiano Ronaldo also holds the record for most goals scored in a single UCL season with 17.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s historic season began in 2013–14, when he scored an incredible 17 goals for Real Madrid. Messi’s best-ever season total of 14 goals which he accomplished in the 2011–12 campaign.

First 100 Champions League goals 

Both Ronaldo and Messi have made a lasting impression on the UEFA Champions League, but Messi may find it difficult to surpass Ronaldo’s record of being the first player to score 100 goals in the competition—especially since even his superhuman left feet aren’t able to travel back in time to achieve it first. The Portuguese set the mark with a hat-trick against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.

Reaching this kind of milestone requires constant excellence in the football world’s most prestigious club competition.

UEFA Champions league goals record 

With 140 goals in 183 games, Ronaldo has the most goals scored in the history of the UEFA Champions League. Messi has scored 129 goals in 162 games, and it’s difficult to see him participating in Europe once more—let alone the UCL.

Even though Messi is an exceptional player, it doesn’t seem likely that he will be able to surpass these specific accomplishments of Ronaldo.
