3 Messi Sextet Ronaldo Might Never Attain

Nevertheless, there are sextuple records achieved by Messi that are unlikely to be broken by Ronaldo. 

1. Winning Six Trophies In A Single Season: 

In 2008-09 Barcelona completed the most successful year in its history, sweeping all six available trophies; domestic league, domestic cup, domestic Super Cup, Champions League title and then the following season’s European Super Cup and Club World Cup.

This is a difficult task for Ronaldo to achieve considering his age and how poorly Manchester United have been playing. The Red Devils have not won any silverware since the Europa League final victory in 2017.

2. Six European Golden Boots:

To be the leading goalscorer from top division of every European national league is certainly not an easy task, but Messi is the all time record winner with six; 2009–10, 2011–12, 2012-2013, 2016–17, 2017-2018, 2018-2019. However, Cristiano Ronaldo is trailing the Argentine after winning it four times; 2007–08, 2010–11, 2013–14, 2014-15. This means Ronaldo needs two more European golden boots to equal Lionel Messi.

3. Six Ballon D'or: 

Messi and Ronaldo have dominated the ballon d'or award for quite some times. However, Messi has a total of six Ballon D'or; he won the Ballon d'Or four years running between 2009 and 2012 and claimed the trophy twice more in 2015 and 2019. 

Ronaldo needs one more to equal the Argentine's record.
