Lionel Messi is poised to join Cristiano Ronaldo in the elite goal scoring club as he approaches a historic milestone


Lionel Messi, one of the best football players ever, is still working his magic on the field at the age of 35. The stalwart attacker, who most recently helped Argentina win the FIFA World Cup, is close to accomplishing a legendary feat in his club career. Messi, who has now scored 699 goals in club football as a professional, is just one goal away from joining the 700-goal club, which currently only has Cristiano Ronaldo as a member.

Messi played 778 games throughout all competitions during the majority of his career, scoring 672 goals in total. Messi has registered 61 goals in 61 appearances since moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2021, for a total of 27 goals. His total now stands at 699 goals scored in 839 games. The Argentine will be focused on the prestigious milestone as PSG prepares to play Marseille in the Ligue 1 matchup following that.

According to, Messi would join Cristiano Ronaldo (more than 800 club goals) as the only football players in history to have scored 700 or more goals in club football if he scores against Marseille.

In PSG’s final game, Messi’s dramatic 95th-minute free kick gave his team a 4-3 victory against Lille in a thrilling Ligue 1 contest that saw Kylian Mbappe score twice but Neymar leave the field on a stretcher due to an ankle injury.

Messi’s dramatic winner came after PSG lost a 2-0 lead and fell behind 3-2, with Mbappe scoring a late equalizer before the Argentine’s incredible shot.

The outcome puts an end to PSG’s streak of three straight losses and assures that they finish the weekend five points ahead of second-placed Marseille, who won 3-2 at Toulouse and will play the Parisians next.

That was his 27th goal this season across all competitions, but the drama wasn’t over yet because Messi was fouled by Benjamin Andre just outside the penalty area, earning him a free kick.

The World Cup winner came up to finish off a spectacular game by putting the dead ball into the net off the post.
