Who is better Messi or Ronaldo ?


I personally think Cristiano Ronaldo is the overall favourite and better player because of what he brings to the game and what he can do ! What do you think ?

Linked Player: Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi will work his backside off the team. Cristiano Ronaldo wouldn't batter an eyelid. That's where the difference lies, both are OUTSTANDING footballers and not much in it in that sense but Ronaldo's individual "do it for himself rather than the team" attitude is what makes Messi the better overall player.

Messi by far, in all aspects of football, Messi plays for him and his team, Ronaldo plays just for himself and his reputation

It's funny how people think Messi isnt anything without Xavi and Iniesta. both iniesta and Xavi were hurt most of the season and gave messi a combined 9 goals from open play. Messi had 29 assist last season, Ronaldo had 15. Messi creates goal scoring opportunities for his team and himself. Ronaldo gets goal scoring opportunities directed only to him. Real play for Ronaldo, Barca play to score. just so happens messi gets 73 goals lmao Messi is the best player on the planet. I dont know why this is a constant debate. Ronaldo is the best athlete is soccer.

You can't really compare a striker to a winger.

I think Messi is greater in terms of ability but people undermine Ronaldo by stating he's so far behind. The chants of "Messi, Messi" aimed at Cristiano during the Euros were shameful. It's not a bad thing being the second best footballer in the World, especially behind a talent like Leo Messi.
