Lionel Messi is at the top of the list of the highest players in the club in the UEFA Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo, another great footballer of the time, shared his fame on Tuesday night. The number of goals scored by the two in the “home match” of the best club in Europe is now equal to 60.
Ronaldo scored in the 19th minute in the 2: 1 victory over the Italian superior Juventus in Group G at the “Allianz” stadium. The Portuguese striker touched Messi with that goal. The 35-year-old star found the net with a strong blow from the left leg from the outside of the D-box to Juan Cuadrado.
Despite playing for Barcelona, Argentine striker Messi was at a standstill. Without him, the Spanish giants won 4-0 at Dynamo Kyiv. Ronald Koeman’s men secured a knockout stage in the Champions League with 12 points from four consecutive wins. Juventus, their partner in the round of 16, scored 9 points.
Ronaldo also holds the record for most goals scored in the history of the Champions League. Besides his name, he has 131 goals. In other words, he scored the remaining 61 goals in the opponent’s field. No one else has a reputation for scoring so many goals in a “away game”. Messi, who is in second place, has scored a total of 117 goals. In other words, he scored 46 goals in the opponent’s field.
All of Messi’s goals came in the Barcelona shirt. Ronaldo also scored goals for four different clubs. He joined Juventus after appearing at home club FC Porto, English superpower Manchester United and the most successful Spanish club Real Madrid.
