Many people are of the opinion that Lionel Messi is the greatest football player in history. However, we also have some people who believe that Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi has scored more than 750 goals during his professional football career. Below are three Lionel Messi records that Cristiano Ronaldo may never break.
1. 91 goals in a calendar year
This record was set by Lionel Messi in 2012. It is one of the most amazing records in the history of European football. Cristiano Ronaldo may never break this particular record. This is because the Portuguese captain is already 36 years of age. His productivity has reduced since he left Real Madrid.
2. Most Ballon d'Or awards
Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d'Or award on six different occasions during his professional football career. However, Cristiano Ronaldo has only won it on five occasions. It is important to point out that Ronaldo may not win the award again. This is mainly due to the fact that he is already 36 years of age.
3. Highest number of goals in the El Clasico
This is probably the biggest football match in the world. It is played between Barceloa and Real Madrid. It should be said that Lionel Messi has scored 26 goals in the El Clasico. However, Cristiano Ronaldo has only scored 18 goals in the El Clasico. Ronaldo may never break this record. This is because he no longer plays for Real Madrid.
