Leo messi paris saint-Germain face Maccabi Haifa in the UEFA champions league group stage (group H) with started very difficult for the paris saint-Germain after missing alot of goal chances
Recall that Cristiano desperately wanted to leave Manchester United this season to protect his UEFA champions league records but he was rejected by many giants clubs.
Last summer it was reported that : Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is actively working on a move. Ronaldo is still intent on leaving Old Trafford this summer in order to play Champions League football. Although Manchester United continue to state the 37-year-old is not for sale, that stance is yet to be tested by a concrete offer.
At the end of the summer he stays in the club and play in the UEFA Europa league. He played his first game vs. Real Sociedad which ended in a lose for the reds
WITH LEO MESSI GOAL TODAY HE HAS BROKE THE FOLLOWING RECORDS:
) Lionel Messi has now scored against THIRTY-NINE different teams in the Champions League from NINETEEN different nations.
2). Most teams scored against in Champions League history:
◉ 39 – Lionel Messi
◎ 38 – Cristiano Ronaldo
That’s one CR7 UCL record broken this season.
3). Lionel Messi is the first player in UCL history to score in EIGHTEEN consecutive Champions League seasons.
However, Ronaldo still leads Messi in the number of overall goals scored in the Champions League. The Portuguese forward has bagged a total of 140 goals in the competition, while the strike in Haifa moved Messi on to 126 – 14 goals behind the man united forward.
The two superstars are comfortably clear in the competition’s all-time scoring records, with third-placed Robert Lewandowski sitting on 89 goals. Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland who might be eyeing those records over the course of their careers – are on 35 and 25 goals respectively.
Ronaldo is not involved in the Champions League this season after United’s failure to qualify from last season’s premier league, in which they finished in sixth position. It is the first season that Ronaldo has not been involved in Europe’s premier club competition since 2002/03, before his first switch to Old Trafford from Sporting CP.
