The duel between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is ‘red hot’. The Portuguese continues to make history in the elite of world football and reached first place in the table of historical goalscorers in official matches, after his double with Juventus to give him a 2-1 victory over Inter Milan in the Italian Cup.

With these, the Portuguese reached 763 annotations, surpassing Pelé and Josef Bican, who are evenly matched (now in the second position) with 762 goals scored throughout their respective careers.

This new Cristiano Ronaldo brand reawakened interest in the personal duel he has with his archrival on the field of play, Lionel Messi, who is also a member of this important ranking.

It should be noted that Cristiano Ronaldo has 22 goals and 4 assists in the 23 games he has played this season. With this dream day, he adds to the Italian Cup the competitions in which he scored, previously having checked the Serie A, Champions League, and Italian Super Cup.

How Many Goals From Cristiano Ronaldo Did Lionel Messi Have Left?

Lionel Messi officially has 720 goals with him, placing himself 43 goals behind Cristiano Ronaldo, an important figure that could continue to increase, if the Portuguese attacker maintains the high level shown so far.

Despite this, the ’10’ of the Argentine National Team has a slight point in his favor, since he is two years younger than the current Juventus attacker, which – if he retires at the same age from the sport – would allow him that time to shorten distances and/or overcome it.
