Messi and Ronaldo are the top scorers in their respective leagues at the moment having scored 18 goals apiece.
If anything, this shows both players are still at the top of their game and aren't showing any signs of slowing down a bit.
In few years time, we may not get to witness Messi and Ronaldo make their way on to the pitch again after everything they have won, but their records, legacies and histories will definitely live on.
One of those records is their goalscoring statistics.
So far on total career goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is still the greatest goalscorer in official matches.
Even on club career goals, Lionel Messi is still trailing Ronaldo despite scoring two goals against Elche.
For the record, Ronaldo has scored 663 career club goals while Messi has 657 to his name.
Considering the fact Messi is two years younger than Cristiano, who do you think will finish their career with more club goals?
