When we talk about football, in the last decade the association is Messi or Ronaldo. No matter that Barcelona lost the match against Manchester City, the goal that Messi scored secured him another record.
This record is for top goalscorers in the group stage of Champions League, that until yesterday was keept by Raul Gonzalez, the former Real Madrid striker. He has scored 53 goals in Champions League and many years was the top scored, but now with yesterday goal Messi has 54 goals scored in Champions League group stage and this is a new record from the Argentinian.
In the third place is Cristiano Ronaldo with 51 goals but tonight he has a match and a possible hat trick it’s going to put him on same position with Messi. However in the next four or five seasons the “battle” between Messin and Ronaldo will be in all the fields including La Liga, Champions League and National team success. It’s going to be very hard for other players to achieve this records in the next decade.
