UEFA Champions League

Top 5 football players with the longest goalscoring streak

Mohamed Salah recently became the highest goalscorer for Liverpool in the Champions League. Moreover, the Egyptian winger has now scored in nine consecutive matches across all competitions. On that note, we look at the highest goal scoring streaks across all leagues in this article: 

Ruud Van Nistelrooy 

The Manchester United striker scored in the last seven games of the 2002/03 season when the team won the Premier League. He went on to extend the record to ten games, which was unprecedented at the time. 

Jamie Vardy 

The Leicester City legend broke Van Nistelrooy’s record by scoring against Manchester United. The striker broke the record in the 2015/16 when the Foxes won the title. 

Robert Lewandowski 

The Bayern Munich star broke Gerd Muller’s record of scoring 40 goals in one Bundesliga season last year, and scored in 19 successive games across all competitions. Gerd Muller still holds the record of scoring in 16 consecutive Bundesliga games. 

Lionel Messi

Messi had an outrageous 2012/13 season, where he scored in 21 consecutive games in La Liga, which consisted of every other team in the league. The Argentinian scored 93 goals in 2012 which is a spectacular return, and will arguably never be matched in history. 

Cristiano Ronaldo

No records list would be complete without Cristiano Ronaldo, and the Portuguese star has achieved the feat on two occasions. Ronaldo scored eleven goals in 2016-17 and 2017-18. With Juventus, he matched Gabriel Batistuta who scored 11 goals in consecutive games in 1994-95.
