Author of a treble in front of Manchester City, Lionel Messi took advantage of CR7 ‘s silence the day before to remake part of his delay in the ranking of the best scorers in C1.
Who will arrive first to surpass the bar of the 100 goals in the Champions league? One thing is for sure, it will be either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. Not very surprising! And since the two monsters of the planet football leave nothing to the others, they are still competing for this particular distinction. For the moment, it is Portuguese that dominates the debates since it totals 96 pawns in C1 (98 European goals taking into account the European Supercup), while the Argentine is at 89 (92 at continental level with this same supercut).
But the Pulga seems to have switched to a higher speed on the last matches since it already has 6 goals in two meetings this season (two triplets). He is only two goals. But he took advantage of the reception of the Legia Warsaw (5-1) to become the best passer in the history of the C1 with 30 “assists”, in front of Ryan Giggs (28). And yes, that also counts! On the next day of the Champions League, Real will move to Warsaw while Barca travels to City. An opportunity for CR7 to dig a little further away or for Messi to put pressure? Answer in a few days … Who do you think will cross the bar of the 100 first?
