The Portuguese's brace against Getafe in Los Blancos' 3-1 win on Saturday were his 300th and 301st league strikes in the Spanish top flight.
Ronaldo achieved the incredible milestone in just 286 matches, while it took his counterpart Messi 344 appearances to reach the triple century of league goals.
The 33-year-old and the Blaugrana talisman are the only two players in the history of LaLiga to have scored 300 or more goals.
While Ronaldo accomplished the landmark quicker than Messi, the Argentine was just 17 years old when he started playing for Barca's first side, and was a rotational player for his first two seasons.
Since the Portugal captain joined LaLiga from Manchester United in 2009, the Barca man has hit the back of the net 319 times in 300 games compared to Ronaldo's 301 in 286 matches.
