The only person in contemporary football who can be compared to Lionel Messi is Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi is often considered the best player ever to play the game. The Portuguese international player has established a reputation for excellence throughout Europe over the last several years, particularly in the UEFA Champions League, where he has won titles and scored goals.
In the history of the UEFA Champions League, Ronaldo is now the player with the most goals scored, and as was to be anticipated, Lionel Messi is just behind him in second place. Lionel Messi has scored 125 goals in the UEFA Champions League, while Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 140 goals in the competition. Ronaldo has 15 more goals to his name than Lionel Messi has, according to these statistics.
Lionel Messi is now playing in such good form that it is quite possible for him to pass Cristiano Ronaldo and become the all-time leading scorer in UCL history. It is conceivable for Lionel Messi to score 15 goals in the UEFA Champions League this season. During this season, Lionel Messi has a chance to pass Cristiano Ronaldo in the standings.
Ronaldo, on the other hand, is not participating in the UEFA Champions League, and as a result, he will not be eligible to compete in the UEFA Champions League until the next season. This implies that he will have to wait until the following season. In point of fact, no one is aware of whether or not Manchester United will be able to participate in the UEFA Champions League at the conclusion of this season.
There is a good chance that Lionel Messi will pass Cristiano Ronaldo and become the all-time leading scorer in UCL history. This would be a significant accomplishment for Messi.
