Messi overtakes Cristiano Ronaldo in another stat

Now, Messi has moved ahead of Ronaldo in terms of the most freekick goals by an active player. The No.10 has now scored 57 in his career, one more than Ronaldo’s 56.
Amazingly, 20 of these freekicks have been scored in just the past five years. Most of them have been to Barcelona’s benefit, with 50 of them scored while playing club football. But, Argentina have benefitted too as this was the seventh Messi freekick goal for the Albiceleste.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, has scored 32 of his freekicks for Real Madrid, 13 for Manchester United, 10 for Portugal and one for Juventus.

When he takes to the pitch in Hungary vs Portugal on Tuesday evening, Ronaldo will look to pull level with Messi once again.
against Chile in Monday night’s Copa America match, Lionel Messi overtook Cristiano Ronaldo on another list. The Argentine and the Portuguese have been sporting rivals for a decade and a half, competing to win individual awards and to break records.
