Five Lionel Messi Records Cristiano Ronaldo Might Never Break

With superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo having broken and set records like no players before them, here are five records held by the FC Barcelona man that his Real Madrid rival might never be able to break.

Click through the gallery above to see glimpses of Messi and Ronaldo's incredible rivalry over the past decade!

Sportskeeda recently compiled a list of five records the Argentine has set during his career, ones that Ronaldo has not come close to.

In the 2011/12 season, Messi struck an incredible 50 league goals for the Catalan giants in 37 LaLiga games. The record might be out of reach for Ronaldo this season, as he has 22 league goals with nine games to go.

The Portuguese attacker did come close in the 2014/15 season, when he found the back of the net on 48 occasions from 35 games.

The second record mentioned by Sportskeeda is Messi's Ballons d'Or achievement of winning the award for four consecutive years. Although both Messi and Ronaldo have lifted the prestigious accolade five times, the Real forward has only won it two times in a row on two separate occasions.

The Argentina captain won the prestigious prize in succession from 2009 until 2012, breaking Michel Platini's record of winning it in three successive campaigns.

The third record the publication believe Ronaldo may never break is Messi's tally of assists in El Clasicos. While the 33-year-old has created just one strike in the biggest derby in Spain, Messi has assisted on 14 occasions.

Ronaldo has also never scored more than 60 goals in two successive campaigns. In the 2011/12 season, Messi scored an incredible 73 times for Barca, and the following season saw him find the back of the net 60 times.

The Portuguese has, however, scored more than 60 goals in two different seasons, but is yet to achieve that feat twice in a row.

Lastly, Messi holds the record for the most goals scored in a single calendar year, an achievement Ronaldo has not yet really threatened to get. In 2012, the Blaugrana superstar found the net 91 times for club and country.

Drogba Makes Big Messi Claim

The closest his rival has come is 69 goals in a single year, although it must be said that Ronaldo has been scoring at a rapid rate in 2018, having struck 21 goals since the beginning of January already.

Do you think Ronaldo will ever be able to break the aforementioned records? Let us know in the comments section below.

Messi has never won a trophy with his national team... Messi hasn't won the champions league with two different teams Messi is a racist. Messi at Barcelona hasn't won the champions league twice in a row.

Messi doent need 5days rest to perfom well I once said ronaldo need proper preperation to perfom well thats why they will never win la liga back to back because its fixtures are much congested so madrid need a lot of time to prepare champions leagye suits their way of trauning because they use a lot of energy messi you can play him today and tomorriw still perfom the same
