Ibrahimovic Equals Messi and Ronaldo European Records

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his landmark 300th goal with a bicycle kick in stoppage-time to earn a point for Serie A leaders AC Milan against Udinese, on Saturday, December 11, 2021.

Ibrahimovic becomes just the third person in the 21st century to score 300 goals across Europe’s top five leagues.

The 40-year-old equals the achievement of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

A close-range finish from Beto put Udinese ahead in the first half.

Ibrahimovic has scored 404 league goals in total in his career, including 16 for Swedish club Malmo, 35 for Dutch giants Ajax and 53 for MLS side LA Galaxy.

Those across Europe’s top five leagues – Italy’s Serie A, Spain’s La Liga, England’s Premier League, Germany’s Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1 – now totals 300.

However, he is way behind the goalscoring exploits of Manchester United forward Ronaldo and PSG star Messi, who have scored 483 and 475 league goals respectively.

The former Sweden striker is in his second spell at Milan having also played for Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona PSG and Manchester United in his long and illustrious career.

The draw moves AC Milan two points clear at the top of the table, though Inter and Napoli could replace them at the summit if they win their games on Sunday.
