Lionel Messi overtakes Ronaldo’s Champions League record

 


In the 37th minute of PSG's game against Maccabi Haifa in Israel, Messi equalized the score after Tjaronn Chery had given them the lead.


With this goal, Messi has now scored in the Champions League against 39 different opponents.


In terms of players who have scored against the most clubs, he is currently without a doubt in first place.

Prior to the Maccabi game, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored against 38 different clubs, shared the record.


In comparison to Raul, another Real Madrid star, Karim Benzema has scored against 34 different opponents. 31 different teams have faced Robert Lewandowski's goals.


Messi also broke other records that evening. The Argentine also made history by becoming the first person to ever score in 18 different Champions League campaigns. 

Messi had a fantastic Champions League career, winning four championships.


At the time of his equalizer against Maccabi Haifa, he had a great start to the 2022–23 season with PSG, having scored four goals and providing seven assists.


This follows a lackluster debut season at PSG the previous year in which he only scored four goals in Ligue 1.
