Champions League: Messi overtakes Ronaldo to claim goalscoring record

Lionel Messi’s goal against PSV Eindhoven, helped the Barcelona star surpass Cristiano Ronaldo to reclaim a Champions League record.

By scoring Barcelona’s opening goal in the 61st minute, Messi moved to 106 career Champions League goals for Barcelona.

The finish sees the Argentine superstar reclaim the record for most Champions League goals for one club, surpassing the mark of 105 set by Ronaldo during his time at Real Madrid.

Now with Juventus, Ronaldo would be very unlikely to reclaim that record any time soon.

The two still remain atop the competition’s all-time scoring charts with Ronaldo currently on 121 Champions League goals to lead the way.

Messi has now scored six Champions League goals this season, moving him past Eden Dzeko to lead the goalscoring chart through five rounds of group stage play.
