Lionel Messi, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, has achieved the 1000th attack point in the European League career.
Messi scored the first winning goal in an away match against OGC Nice in the 30th round of Ligue 1 2022-23 held at Stade du Rey in Nice, France on the 9th (Korean time).
In the 26th minute of the first half, Messi, who was aiming for a goal in front of the goal, shook Nice’s net by finishing a low pass from the left by Nuno Mendes with a left-footed non-stop shot. Messi, who had been silent since scoring against Nantes last month, scored a goal in five games and increased his season record to 19 goals and 18 assists.
Recorded the 1,000th attack point in the club’s career. Messi made his debut for Barcelona in October 2004 and scored 672 goals in 778 official matches in 17 seasons. Afterwards, he scored a total of 702 goals with 30 goals in 68 matches in two seasons at Paris Saint-Germain.
Messi, who scored 702 goals in Europe alone, has clearly surpassed rival Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr). Ronaldo, who currently plays for Al Nasr in Saudi Arabia, has scored 701 goals during his time in Europe. Prior to the game on this day, Messi and Ronaldo were joint leaders for the most goals scored on the European stage, but now it remains as Messi’s only record.
In fact, Messi has already beaten Ronaldo by the standards of the top 5 European leagues, so the fight between the two, who boasted the best goal-making power in the top league both in name and reality, was already at an end.
If you add help points here, Messi reaches a level that no one has been able to achieve. American sports media ‘Fox Sports’ and ‘ESPN’ emphasized that Messi scored 702 goals and 298 assists against Nice, achieving 1,000 attack points at the club alone. 메이저놀이터
Unlike Ronaldo, who left for Asia, Messi plans to continue his career in Europe, so the difference in attack points is expected to widen further in the future. Messi has 8 games left until the end of this season, and even if his contract with Paris Saint-Germain ends, he is looking to return to Barcelona.
