Anything Cristiano can do…
If Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo aren’t actually in a personal heated goal battle, they’re doing a pretty bad job at concealing it!
As has been remarked several times in the past, they often match each other’s numbers per matchday, and Champions League Matchday 1 was another case in point.
Cristiano hit a hat-trick on Tuesday, Messi saw his challenge with an equal goal tally as he hit a triple of his own in Barcelona’s win over Ajax on Tuesday evening.
His 4th Champions League hat-trick takes him to 62 Champions League goals, just 9 off the great Raul Gonzalez’s of 71.
Watch Messi’s latest hat-trick, as he met Cristiano jab for jab in the opening matchday of the Champions League.
