In a thrilling match against Strasbourg, Lionel Messi has once again proven his prowess on the football field by breaking a record previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi, playing for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), scored his 16th league goal of the season, a significant milestone that could potentially secure the Ligue One title for Christophe Galtier’s team.

This goal was not just another addition to Messi’s impressive tally; it marked his 496th goal in a top five European league, surpassing Ronaldo’s record of 495 goals. What makes this achievement even more remarkable is that Messi accomplished this feat in 49 fewer games than Ronaldo.

Despite some recent tensions with PSG fans, particularly after a trip to Saudi Arabia that was not sanctioned by the club, Messi’s performance on the field remains undeterred. His contract with PSG is set to expire in the summer, sparking rumors of a possible move to Saudi Arabia side Al Hilal or a return to his beloved Barcelona.

Messi’s record-breaking goal came after a brilliant pass from Kylian Mbappe, showcasing the team’s excellent synergy. As the match progressed, PSG seemed poised to be crowned champions, with a game to spare, provided they maintained their lead.
