Messi steals another UCL goalscoring record

Messi steals another UCL goalscoring record

F. C. Barcelona star Lionel Messi snatched another record from Cristiano Ronaldo in Wednesday's (Nov 28) victory over PSV. The Argentina international scored a fine goal to move one clear of Ronaldo as the most prolific goalscorer for a single club in UEFA Champions League history.

Indeed, his 106th strike in the competition eclipsed Ronaldo's tally for Real Madrid in the Champions League (105), capping Barca's dominance with a superb effort befitting of the milestone moment.

He picked up the ball on the edge of the box and, with four defenders around him, managed to dance into space and provide a thunderous finish with little backlift.

Messi then set up Gerard Pique to double the visitors lead before Luuk de Jong's late consolation.

On the record, Messi said: "I am delighted, I have just found out now. I am happy for this new stat."

The victory sends Barcelona through as winners of Group B, with Tottenham and Inter Milan still battling for a place in the last 16 ahead of the final round of group fixtures.
