    Another 4 goals for Messi and he will be behind Ronaldo in 6th , jumping from 10th place to 7th.
    Ronaldo is currently 113 goals behind Gerd Muller.

    Stats were wrong at original time i posted so corrected them and keeping on top of them now.
    I now just check the last date i edited the results then look on soccerway for Real Madrid, Barcelona and when they play, Argentina and Portugal.

    So the video ref didn’t do anything? Typical.

    Currently Christiano Ronaldo is on 637 and Lionel Messi is on 587.
    Messi is keeping pace with Ronaldo and by end of this calendar year will be closer i think since he will be playing for a much better international side in the world cup unless he gets injured.

    Messi has 2 and a half years on Ronaldo, that gap is only heading 1 way in a couple of years time.

    I wonder if they ever think about this, 170 or so goals and Ronaldo would be number 1 with Messi not far behind and a couple years younger.

    * willing both players remain injury free for the next 3-4 years as this could be quite compelling.

    Was quite amazed with Ronaldo's Juve Fitness Test results saying he has the body of a 23 year old.

    Guy could be playing when he's 40.

    Mind you, I reckon most top athletes must have a much younger body according to physical testing equipment.

    That's them both started scoring this season. Ronaldo with a double at the weekend and Messi with a hat-trick against PSV last night.
    Currently Christiano Ronaldo is on 644 and Lionel Messi is on 595.

    Karamoko Dembele has 15 years on Messi. That gap is only going one way in a decade and a half.

    These 2 guys are proper freaks. Messi being an alien and undoubtedly the most complete attacking player of all time. Cherish these moments, they will not be replicated for a very long time.. if ever.

    Just shows you how good Gerd Muller was that he is in 5th place still 91 goals ahead of Ronaldo.
