The Number Of Goals Messi Needs To Equal This Record

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo created history against Arsenal by scoring his 800th and 801st official goals in his career to assist Manchester United earn a 1-0 victory on his 1095th appearance in all competitions. Ronaldo's one-time strike and penalty were enough to propel Manchester United to seventh place in the Premier League despite surrendering the game's opening goal.

However, it should be noted that Ronaldo established this record just a few days after he was eliminated from contention for the Ballon d'Or in 2021. Also, it should be noted that Lionel Messi was the recipient of the trophy for the seventh time. This article is a compilation of the number of goals Lionel Messi needs to score in order to tie Cristiano Ronaldo's all-time record. Take a look at this!

The Argentina international has scored 756 goals and provided 318 assists in 948 matches for both his club and country. It should be noted that club friendlies are not included in this calculation, and it includes his time at Barcelona and PSG. As a result, this merely implies that the captain of the Argentine national team will need 45 goals to equal the previous record.

Apart from that, one notable aspect of Cristiano's career is that he has played two more seasons than Lionel Messi.
