Messi's World Record Not In Danger

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are currently the two players with the most goals scored in this calendar year, but the Argentine's 91-goal world record is not in danger.

The FC Barcelona superstar finished 2012 with an unprecedented 91 goals in all competitions for club and country.

He looked like he could get close to this amount in the early stages of 2015, but has now fallen off the pace.

Messi currently sits on 45 goals for the year, four for Argentina and 41 for the Catalan giants.

Of course, he is now injured and will reportedly only return to playing at the end of November, but even if he wasn't sidelined he would have to score 46 goals in just under three months.

Ronaldo is closest to Messi with 42 strikes, three for Portugal and 39 for Los Blancos, but is even further off the world record.

The Portugal captain has been inconsistent in front of goals this season – he scored 10 goals in just three games with Real, while drawing blanks in six other matches.

Back in 2012, Messi had already netted 63 times, seven times for Argentina and 56 for Barcelona, by the end of September.

The Argentine, of course, had broken the previous world record set up by Bayern Munich and Germany legend Gerd Muller, who scored 85 goals for club and country in 1972.
