Lionel Messi Surpasses Cristiano Ronaldo As The Player With The Most Champions League Goals For One Club

Lionel Messi has surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo as the player with the most UEFA Champions League goals for a single club.

Messi scored his 106th UCL goal for Barcelona following his stunning strike against PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday night in a 2-1 victory.

He overtakes long-time rival Ronaldo who bagged 105 UCL goals for Real Madrid between 2009 to 2018, before leaving for Juventus in the summer.

Ronaldo set the record but has now been pipped by Messi, and the Italy-based striker will have to do some serious business in Europe to regain it.

However, Ronaldo is still the most prolific goal-scorer (121) in Champions League history. Messi, of course, is on 106 UCL goals.

The Portuguese superstar also made Champions League history this week, becoming the very first player to register 100 UCL wins from his time at Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.

Both Barcelona and Juventus have booked their spot in the Champions League knockout round ahead of Match Day 6.
