Cristiano Ronaldo’s TV had to fly out the window.
The Portuguese spent the whole summer scrambling to join a club that would play the most prestigious of competitions, the Champions League, his own competition. To continue to be the undisputed boss, and to avoid seeing his great rival, Lionel Messi, steal his Mr LDC costume. Even if he swapped his serial goalscorer costume for that of playmaker Since his arrival at PSG, Leo Messi was not going to miss this golden opportunity to come and tickle the ego of Cristiano Ronaldo. This Tuesday evening, during the Parisian victory on the lawn of the brave Israelis of Maccabi Haifa (3-1)the Pulga participated in the celebration by scoring a goal and providing an assist to Kylian Mbappé. A goal far from trivial since it allows the former Barcelona player to break several records.

Messi thus became, thanks to this goal, the first player to have scored for eighteen Champions League seasons, proof if necessary of the extraordinary longevity and regularity of the Argentine left-hander. But the Parisian number 30 broke an even more impressive record. On Wednesday evening, Maccabi Haifa became the 39e European training to give in to the sevenfold Ballon d’Or! Messi thus overtakes CR7, who has scored “only” against 38 different teams in his career, and becomes the sole holder of this record.
CR7 must be reassembled like a cuckoo, watch out for you Sheriff Tiraspol.
