Record to break? I’m in.

When it comes to scoring, Messi and Ronaldo are always on top of the charts. Both players have been pushing each other to better themselves, and that has resulted in them scoring in almost every single match.

Ronaldo was the first to achieve this feat when he scored past every single team that came up against Real Madrid in the La Liga 2011/12 season. The Portuguese international scored hat-trick past 7 of the 19 opponents that season and ended up the season with 46 goals. Despite all this, he did not manage to win the Pichichi Trophy as Messi scored 50 goals!

Messi did not let Ronaldo be the only player to score past every opponent in the La Liga for long. In the very next season (2012/13), the Argentine also managed to achieve this feat. The Barcelona superstar also took home the Pichichi Trophy after notching 46 goals in that season.
