Most of the pages of football records seem to be the name of two of them. When they were in the field, the record book was to be written in a new way. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo took themselves to another level in the game. These two footballers still did not touch some records in European football. Ron and Leo are working a few more days to write their name besides those records.

European Cup/Champions League..

◾European Cup/ Champions League highest scorer of the European Cup final: [ 7 ] Alfredo De Stefano (Real Madrid) & Ferenc Puskas (Real Madrid)

◾Most goals in the European Cup final match: [ 5 times ]- Alfredo De Stefano (Real Madrid–1956, '57, '58, '59, '60).

◾ Top scorer in a European semi-final: [ 4 ] Ferenc Puskas (Real Madrid, 1970)

Alfredo De Stefano holds the record for most individual goals in a European Cup (now UEFA Champions League). He has played in 5 consecutive finals. Stefano scored a total of seven goals in the final in 1955-1960, five times in a row to present the title to Real. Ronaldo has 4 goals and Messi has only 2.

◾Top scorer in UEFA Champions League group stage: [ 53 ] - Raul Gonzalez.

◾European Cup / UEFA Champions League quarter-final top scorer: [ 14 ] Alfredo De Stefano.

◾The highest scorer in European Cup / UEFA Champions League semi-finals: [ 11 ] Alfredo De Stefano.

Ronaldo (current record holder) and Lionel Messi have broken Raul Gonzalez's two highest goalscorers in the UEFA Champions League and European Cup. However, the former Real star still holds the record for the highest scorer in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. However, Ronaldo (49) and Messi (47) are waiting to break this record at any time. De Stefano still holds the record for most goals scored in a quarter-final. However, Ronaldo scored 12 goals in the quarter and 6 goals in the semi and Messi is leading the record with 10 goals in the quarter and 4 in the semi-final.

Success for various teams:

◾ Top goal-scorer in Champions League for different teams: [ 6 ]- Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Ajax, Juventus, Internazionale, Barcelona, ​​Milan, PSG)

Cristiano Ronaldo is the only footballer to have scored for two teams in the Champions League final. On the other hand, Velibor Vasovich is unfortunate. This is because the footballer scored goals for two teams in the European final (Partizan, 1996 and Ajax, '69) but never won. Meanwhile, if Ronaldo wants to share the record of Clarence Seedorf, Ronaldo will have to win another new team to win the Champions League. However, for now, neither Messi nor Ronaldo is likely to go near Ibrahimovic's record. Maybe Ibrahimovic, who has been changing clubs one after another, can make his record bigger. All of Messi's goals in the Champions League have been scored by Barcelona, ​​while Ronaldo has played for United and Real Madrid.

Older goal scorer:

◾Champions League Final: Paolo Maldini (36 years 333 days) Milan vs Liverpool (25/05/2005)

◾ Champions League, from the group stage to final: Francesco Totti (36 years 59 days) CSK Moscow vs Roma (25/11/2014)

◾European Cup: Manfred Bergsmuller (36 years 243 days) Warder Bremen v Dynamo Berlin (11/10/1986)

Messi-Ronaldo has to be very patient to break Paolo Maldini's record. Ronaldo's first chance will become in the 2021/22 Champions League final and Messi will have to wait until the 2023/24 season! Ronaldo will have the opportunity to become the oldest goal scorer in the final from the group stage of the Champions League on April 1, 2023, and after Messi on August 22, 2025! On the other hand, to be the oldest goalscorer in the European Cup, Ronaldo has to be patient until November 22, 2023, and Messi until April 13, 2026.

Fastest goals:

◾The fastest goal of the Champions League: Roy McKay (10.12 seconds) Bayern Munich v Real Madrid (07/03/2007)

◾The fastest goal of the Champions League Final: Paolo Maldini (53 seconds) Milan vs Liverpool (25/05/2005)

Bayern's Roy McKay scored the goal after the defender's mistakes in the aftermath of Real Madrid's kick-off. Ronaldo-Messi both of them make the fastest goal in four minutes. Ronaldo scored a goal against Juventus in November '13. On the other hand, Messi was against FC Basel in October 2008. Messi-Ronaldo is not near the fastest goal of Maldini in the final. Messi's goal in the final of the Champions League is in the second half. On the other hand, Ronaldo's fastest goal came in 26 minutes, against Chelsea.
