Ronaldo Still Has More Goals Than Messi Against LaLiga Top 3 Teams Despite Leaving Spain 3 Years Ago

Cristiano Ronaldo was breathtaking throughout his 9-year stay in Spain where he faced long-term rival Lionel Messi many times.

Ronaldo won numerous accolades at Real Madrid and was a constant threat to big teams like Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla whenever he faced them.

However, the former Man United star decided to take on a new challenge in Italy where he's now playing for Turin-based side, Juventus.

Despite not playing in same league again, both Ronaldo and Messi have still kept their rivalry going, with both players already notching 27 and 28 league goals for Juventus and Barcelona this season.

But then, there's one intriguing fact between Messi and Ronaldo.

Since 2018/19 season, CR7 has scored the most goals against the top 3 La Liga teams compared to Messi.

With Juventus, Ronaldo has faced Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, bagging a hattrick against Diego Simeone's side in 2019 to knock them out.

Then in 2020, Ronaldo faced Barcelona once again and scored 2 goals against the Catalans, with Lionel Messi unable to inspire his team that night in Camp Nou.

In total, Ronaldo have scored 5 goals against 2 of the top 3 La Liga teams since 2018/19.

Messi in 11 meetings against the likes of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have scored just 3 times.

In other words, Cristiano Ronaldo still has more goals than Lionel Messi against La Liga top 3 teams despite leaving Spain 3 years ago.
