Leo Messi scored both goals as Barcelona beat Ajax 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday, giving Messi 71 notches on his Champions League belt, enough to pull level with Raúl, who has held the record of 71 since April 2011.

Messi has the opportunity to make himself the clear leader when Barcelona plays Cypriot team APOEL FC on Nov. 25, but he shouldn’t get too comfortable just yet, as Cristiano Ronaldo is just one goal behind with 70.
