Ronaldo and Messi's goals record in the Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two greatest forwards of this era and there exists a great rivalry between the two strikers no doubt, as both dominate the Ballon d’Or since 2008.

As the two main attacking forces for two of the biggest clubs (Real Madrid and Barcelona) and fiercest rivals in football, comparisons have regularly been made between the pair throughout their playing careers.
However, the two forwards surpassed Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez’s goals in the competition and by the end of 2014/15 season, Ronaldo and Messi were levelled on 77 goals.

Ronaldo, who last season became the first player to score 100 times in UEFA club competition, now leads 105-96; in overall UEFA club competition goals it is 108-99 in his favour after Messi’s strikes against Juventus.

UEFA has also picked out some noteworthy stats amid all the numbers. 

Messi has only been on the losing side three times when he has scored.

Ronaldo has netted twice or more on 29 different occasions.

They are level 7-7 in hat-tricks.

Ronaldo did not score until his 30th game in the competition.

Ronaldo had notched in both rounds of 16 legs five seasons running until 2016/17.

Ronaldo is the first player to 50 knockout goals.

Ronaldo is the only player to score in three UEFA Champions League finals.

Both have nine goals against one club: Ronaldo v Bayern München and Messi v Arsenal.
