Lionel Messi is on course to finish out on his own as UEFA Champions League top scorer for the first time since 2011/12.

If Messi does end up with more goals to his name than anyone else, it will be the 12th season in a row that either he or Cristiano Ronaldo have been at least joint top in the scoring charts.
