    Yeah it’s slightly odd however it will be interesting see if mbappe continues upon his upward trajectory
    He is currently on course to matching many great goalscorers in the coming years
    I believe he isn’t even a set piece taker for his teams so just imagine he starts taking penalties and freekicks

    Lionel messi finally equals /overtakes cristiano ronaldo for most goals scored in the history of european top 5 leagues(there seems to be some dispute over the validity of a goal scored by CR in 2011 that was accredited to pepe due to a deflection)

    I suspect this lead will only increase and they will finish their careers in the same position as they currently are

    Messi should be as of now considered a top 5 undisputed historic goalscorer alongside gerd muller,ferenc puskas,pele and cristiano ronaldo
    All things considered(including titles,assists,chances created etc) he is for me the most dominant league performer ever
     
    AD78 repped this.

    We will have to see his ratio in 2.5 years if its the same
    In any case it is known and hardly disputed messi was a phenomenon level player at a younger age than ronaldo

    It took CR 36 games to score his first CL goal
    He was 22 years old then(2007)
    I think he struck his 50th PL goal at 22 years old
    Messi had approx 100 by that age

    If you compare their respective goal records since 2007 the gap is much narrower
