The PSG superstar fired himself to another milestone with his goal in Saturday's win at Nice.

In another historic moment for football, Lionel Messi has broken Cristiano Ronaldo's record for the most goals scored by a player in Europe. The Argentine superstar achieved the feat during Paris Saint-Germain's game against Nice, where he scored a crucial goal to help his team secure a 2-0 victory.

Messi's goal against the Eaglets came from a first-time finish following a low cross into the box by Nuno Mendes in the first half. The goal was greeted with rapturous applause from the PSG faithful, who have been critical of Messi in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos there was no room for a comeback by getting PSG's second of the night. The former Real Madrid star took Lionel Messi's goal contribution for the night to two and a 1000 across his illustrious career by heading home a corner from the World Cup winner.

For the hosts, it was not for the lack of trying as they were able to probe and attack the PSG defence. More often than not, they came short, with Gianluigi Donnarumma making a series of excellent saves to deny them a goal. Additionally, Nice captain, Dante, came close to scoring, hitting the bar and post before the ball bounced out.

In hindsight, Lionel Messi's goal took his overall tally to 702 goals, breaking Ronaldo's record of 701. It is worth noting that the former Barcelona star achieved this milestone in 103 fewer matches than his archnemesis, making the feat all the more impressive. This season, he has registered 19 goals and 18 assists in 34 games for PSG.

With Ronaldo now playing in a non-European league for Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr, the record is indeed Messi's for the taking for the time being, at least.
