Cristiano Ronaldo with Real Madrid:
— Real Madrid Stats (@RMadrid_Stats) July 10, 2018
Cristiano Ronaldo left behind a record that is simply mind-boggling in La Liga. Lionel Messi might go on to score many more goals than CR7 in the League but he will not be able to leave behind a record of more goals than appearances. This is because Ronaldo netted 311 goals in 292 League matches for Real Madrid. Messi has 402 goals in 437 matches.
However, in the assist League, the Argentine is far more superior than the Portuguese. Ronaldo was blamed for being selfish in front of goal and this explains why he only assisted 86 goals during his time in Spain. He switched to Juventus last summer which means he might not be able to improve on these records.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is in a League of his own in so many areas in La Liga. The Argentine is not only the all-time best scorer in the Spanish top flight with 402 goals in 437 matches but also holds assists record with 159 so far.
