Both the players have toppled a number of records on their way to achieving greatness and have created new ones, which are extremely hard to be broken or replicated in the future. In the following lines, we will have a look at a few of these records created by Lionel Messi that might never be broken.
Most consecutive Balon d’Or wins
The Argentine has won six Balon d’Ors in total so far in his career, one more than his arch-nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo. While this is a record that any professional football player will envy, we are certain that the record of him winning four Balon d’Ors consecutively between 2009 and 2012 is the one that might never be broken.
He was in sublime form for Barcelona during this period and the Balon d’Or wins are testaments to his stellar display for the Blaugrana. During this period, he also helped the Catalan club to win the treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Champions League during the 2008/09 season, as Barcelona became only one of the two clubs to achieve this incredible feat twice in the history of European football, the other one being the German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Most goals in La Liga history
After Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009, it was a fierce rivalry between him and Lionel Messi for the position of the best forward in the world. However, as Leo has played for the same club since the start of his career till now, his goalscoring record has been incredible as well as untouchable for any player so far. The Argentine maestro has notched up 450 goals in 498 games for the Blaugrana so far, with Ronaldo falling short by a massive 150 goals while scoring goals for Real Madrid in La Liga.
Most goals in a Champions League knockout game
Messi scored five goals against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League, which is the most by any player in a single game in the biggest club competition in Europe. He led his team to a resounding 7-1 victory over the German side in the match in 2012, which was a glimpse of the sublime form he was in that particular year as he finished with a total tally of 79 goals with Barcelona (59 in La Liga, 13 in the Champions League, 5 in the Copa del Rey and 2 in the Spanish Super Cup).
Most goals in a calendar year
With reference to the incredible season he had in 2012 for both Barcelona and Argentina, the little magician scored a staggering 91 goals in total in a calendar year, a record that is next to impossible to be broken by any player in the future. We are blessed to have witnessed him in his prime form during this time and no one will argue much about that.
Most goals in a single season in La Liga
The 2011/12 season was definitely one of the high points in Messi’s career that he and his fans will never forget. The Barcelona ace notched up 50 goals in La Liga during this season, which is a record that we reckon no one will be able to break. Though Ronaldo came close to breaking the record with 48 goals in the 2014/15 season, Messi’s half-century of goals is a record that might survive the test of time.
