Former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo sits at the summit of the all-time top UCL goalscorers chart, with 121 goals scored in 158 appearances.
 
The 34-year-old made history when he became the first player ever to clinch five Champions League titles after helping Real secure an unprecedented third successive Champions League title following their 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the 2017/18 edition of the tournament.
 
Since getting his hands on his maiden Champions League title with the Red Devils in 2008, the Portuguese superstar has finished as the top goalscorer in the competition on seven different occasions, more than any other player during that period.
 
FC Barcelona's all-time top scorer Lionel Messi is the tournament's second all-time top scorer, with 106 strikes in 129 clashes.
 
The 31-year-old, who has scored the most goals (106) for one club in the history of the competition, has picked up the UCL Golden Boot award on five occasions.
 
Former Barcelona and current Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is the only player to break Messi and Ronaldo's duopoly in the past 10 Champions League campaigns, with the Brazilian finishing the 2014/15 campaign with 10 strikes – the same as the Argentine and the Portugal captain.
 
 
Indicative of his dominance in the Champions League, Ronaldo has claimed the past six Golden Boot awards, while Messi has won it five times, dating back to the 2008/09 edition of the tournament, when Barcelona beat United in the final.
 
Who do you consider to be the greater player, Messi or Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments section below.
