A decade-long rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo has spilled over into the Champions League, where the pair currently occupy the top two spots in the competition's all-time leading goalscorers list. The latter has scored 126 goals in the competition across his spells with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, while his Argentine nemesis trails closely behind with 112 strikes.
No other player has breached the 100-goal mark, with former Spain international striker Raul languishing some way behind in third place on 71 goals. The majority of his return came during his time with Real Madrid, although he also featured for Bundesliga side Schalke in the tournament.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic comes in at 10th place with 48 goals to his name. The Swedish star, who currently plays for MLS side LA Galaxy, holds the record for having scored for the most different teams in the Champions League, having done so for Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.
