Messi Equals Ronaldo Record

Seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi scored twice in Paris Saint-Germain's 4-1 win over Club Brugge in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, and equalled a certain Cristiano Ronaldo record in doing so.

The 34-year-old netted a brace in Paris to bring up five strikes in as many matches in the Champions League group stage this season.

While both goals will boost the Argentine's confidence amid rumours he is not quite loving life in France, it was his first that was extra special as it saw him equal Ronaldo's record for the most teams scored against in the competition.

According to Squawka, Messi has now struck against 38 different sides since his debut in the tournament, a feat only achieved by his longstanding rival.
