Lionel Messi breaks yet another Cristiano Ronaldo record.
Lionel Messi, the forward for Paris Saint-Germain, has broken yet another record previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo.
On Sunday, September 18th, 2022, the Argentine scored from open play against Lyon in Ligue 1. With this goal, Messi (672) has surpassed both Pele (671) and Cristiano Ronaldo (671) for the most non-penalty goals in football history.
In comparison to his poor form in his first season, the former Barcelona player has been in fantastic form for PSG this season. However, Ronaldo has struggled under Manchester United’s new manager, Erik Ten Hag.
Lionel Messi now has more goals than Cristiano Ronaldo, discounting penalties.
