- Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are set to become football's greatest goalscorers of all time
- The Barcelona star has scored 696 goals while the Juventus star man has 725 strikes in his name
- Both stars have 0.90 goal per ratio and the target to reach 800 goals is realistic with international and club engagements
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are currently aiming to become the greatest goalscorers of all time.
Messi recently got to the 1000th mark in his career in goals and assists following his five-star performance against Eibar.
On the other hand, Ronaldo also scored in his 1000th game in his professional career in Juventus' win over SPAL.
Messi has scored 23 goals in 28 games this season and he is four-goals shy of reaching 700 career goals for club and country.
There is still plenty of opportunities for the 32-year-old to score more goals as Barca will take on Napoli in their Champions League last 16 clash in Naples.
At 35, Ronaldo does not look like slowing down both on the international scene and on club level as he notched up his 42nd goal for Juve in just 52 matches.
He becomes the best ever Portuguese player to have played in the Italian Serie A after Rui Costa who scored 42 goals in over 300 matches.
Messi and Ronaldo still have international and club commitments to score more goals and could add to their tally in the next 100 matches.
CR7 has 725 goals while Messi 696 strikes are getting ready to add up which could add up to 800 goals due to their 0.90 goals per game ratio.
