Cristiano Ronaldo,Lionel Messi,Free-Kick Record

Cristiano Ronaldo is close to matching Lionel Messi's free-kick record after his incredible hat-trick in Al Nassr's 8-0 victory over Abha Club. Ronaldo has now scored 63 goals from free-kicks, just two goals behind Messi.

Cristiano Ronaldo is closing in on Lionel Messi 's free-kick record after his performance against Pitso Mosimane's Abha Club .

Cristiano Ronaldo is close to matching a certain Lionel Messi milestone after his incredible hat-trick in Al Nassr's 8-0 demolition of Pitso Mosimane's Abha Club this week.Two of the 39-year-old's goals came in the form of direct free-kicks, which saw him edge closer to his long-time rival Messi, now of Inter Miami in the MLS, for successful set-piece efforts.

Ronaldo scored his first free-kick goal in the 2003/04 campaign during his first spell at Manchester United, while Messi's first was converted in the 2008/09 season when he was still at Barcelona. Since joining Saudi giants Al Nassr, the ex-Real Madrid talisman has elevated the profile of the Saudi Pro League, but might need to wait for next season for his first chance to win the league title there.The Knights of Najd finished second to Al Ittihad on the table in his debut campaign in the Middle East, and are currently 12 points adrift of leaders Al Hilal this time around, with only eight matches remaining.
