The two best players in the world of football right now are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Many things set them apart from the competition, but one of the most important is their track records. The goats' names are littered with accomplishments. Some records, on the other hand, remain unbroken by either celebrity and may remain unbroken until they retire. Here are six of them for your perusal.
1. The team with the most goals in the European Cup finals is number one.
2. Victories in the European Cup and the Champions League.
The only other player to have won six European Cups is Francisco Gento. From 1956 until 1966, he was a multiple-time Real Madrid champion. When it comes to winning, both Messi and Ronaldo have plenty of experience.
3. Success in the Champions League with a variety of different teams.
Seedorf is the only person to have achieved this feat while playing for Ajax, Real Madrid, and AC Milan in the Champions League (twice). Having recently transferred from Juventus to Manchester United, Ronaldo was unable to break this record, even if he had won the Champions League with Juventus.
4. In the Champions League, four hat-tricks in a row.
This is a tough one, but Ronaldo and Messi can still pull it off. Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano is the only player to score a hat trick against BATE Borisov at home and away in 2014. Neither Ronaldo nor Messi have ever broken this record of treble-scoring consecutive Champions League games.
5. In a European season, the most goals have been scored.
During the 2010-11 season, Radamel Falcao scored 18 goals to help Porto win the Europa League. The record of 17 goals scored by Ronaldo was almost broken in 2014, but Messi's tally still stands at 14.
