600th Career Goals: Another Milestone Chase For Messi & Ronaldo

Published

on

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are beyond question two of the greatest football players of all time. The duo has battled each other to take a decisive victory of pretty much every record going over the last decade, but, at 31 and 34 years old respectively, despite everything they still have another milestone achievement to pursue: the race to 600 career goals.

At the point when Cristiano formed part of a dominant Red Devils side under Sir Alex Ferguson, many longed for watching him play in Spain so they could enjoy a contention between the best two players on the planet. When he penned a deal with the Spanish giants, their wish was granted, and the battle for the Ballon D’or has since been a two-horse race.

Ronaldo surprise move to Serie A side Juventus made another matchup between the two progressively improbable, however, at this point, another critical contention has emerged between the two for every one of the football loving fans to enjoy: the 600th goals in their professional career. The duo are close and will more than likely complete this remarkable milestone before the end of this campaign.

It is the Portuguese who is somewhat closer, as the former Los Blancos forward has scored 599 goals as of now – needing just one more goal to achieve the stunning achievement in a sparkling career. This goal could come in this week’s ‘Derby D’italia‘ crucial clash against Inter Milan.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi having notched in a stunning 597 goals until this point in his professional career, the diminutive Argentinian sits two goals behind ‘CR7‘. He has failed to score in his last two games against Real Sociedad and Alavés, which means a solid hattrick this weekend would make him snatch the record ahead of Ronaldo.

Strikingly, the Barcelona and Juventus games do overlap. The Blaugrana host Levante at 20:45 Spanish time, while the Old Lady travels to the San Siro and faces Inter Milan at 20:30. This sets up one more interesting duel between the two greats.
