Ronaldo VS Messi: Simple Stats That Reveals The GOAT

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have dominated the world of football for the past 20 years of their ceaseless appearance in numerous matches.

The argument of who the best is, between the two iconic footballers trends every moment mostly on social media among football lovers or fans and has lasted for a very long time.

Football critics believe both players who shared 11 Balon D’ors have been misjudged or contradicted based on several substandard parameters or qualities which might not have revealed or validate their staggering performances on the pitch

However, we picked a simple analysis of both players that succinctly expose their true performances. Aside from that, they both play in different positions, a better way to define the two players would be based on when the duo faced off in the Spanish La Liga league.

Cristiano Ronaldo Vs Messi In The Spanish La Liga Ligue

Messi scored 329 goals in 309 games in La Liga, while Ronaldo scored 311 goals in 292 outings.

These kinds of stats – scoring more than a goal per game for such a long time – reflect a remarkable production in this sport that we seldom witness. We can as well say consistency is a similarity they both portray.

Again, the scoring rates in La Liga are quite close, with Messi scoring every 79 minutes and Ronaldo scoring every 81 minutes throughout this same span.

When assists are taken into account, the difference between the two is slightly narrower. In La Liga, Messi had 122 assists while Ronaldo had 87. When goals contribution is included, from 2009/10 to 2017/18, Messi contributed a direct goal every 58 minutes in La Liga, whilst Cristiano Ronaldo contributed a goal every 63 minutes.

The two biggest moves in the history of football have been noted to be that of Lionel Messi and Cr7 which shook the whole world of football. Messi completed a move to Barcelona while Ronaldo to Manchester United.

Ronaldo has netted twice for United in his debut game while Messi is yet to make a difference although he hasn’t played fu 90mins game.
