Messi Equals CR7 As All-Time Record Scorer In Europe's Top Five Leagues

Subsequent to adding to his noteworthy goals count for FC Barcelona in their 4-4 draw with Villarreal on Tuesday night, Lionel Messi equalled a mind boggling goalscoring record held by Juventus whiz Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Messi, who is right now the top goalscorer in Europe's best five classes, went ahead as a second-half substitute for Ernesto Valverde's side who originated from two goals down to rescue a point in emotional style against the Yellow Submarine. 

The Argentine was expedited soon after the hour mark and with the score at 2-2, just to see his side surrender two further strikes, abandoning them on the very edge of their first LaLiga misfortune since enduring a 4-3 thrashing to Real Betis in November 2018. 


Be that as it may, Messi got a 90th-minute free-kick to diminish the deficit, before Luis Suarez's last-wheeze equalizer helped the Spanish mammoths complete a sensational rebound. 

The 31-year-old's free-kick strike against Villarreal took his general LaLiga goals count to 414, implying that he is currently the joint record holder for most association goals  scored ever of top five classes, alongside Ronaldo, as indicated by Spanish football master Alexis Martin-Tamayo. 

While Messi and Ronaldo are neck and neck as far as career goals scored in Europe's first class leagues, the Argentine hotshot could finish up with a greater number of goals than his chief adversary given that he is 31 years of age, instead of Ronaldo, who is 34.
