Currently, Messi and Ronaldo are tied on a record eight Champions League hat-tricks for this season. It’s literally nip and tuck between the pair, and you wouldn’t really want to put your money on either.

While things aren’t going so smoothly on the goal-front for Ronaldo at Juventus, the Portuguese star can never be underestimated in Europe. He’s also the Champions League’s record scorer on 126 goals.

But Messi, who has scored 112 European goals himself, might just nick this one.
