With 771 goals for club and country compared to Messi's 734, Ronaldo has scored more goals than Messi, but that doesn't determine who's the better goalscorer according to the fan.
To buttress his point, he makes a compelling argument with these 10 stats:
1. Messi (73) have scored more goals in a single season than Ronaldo (61).
2. Messi's 91 goals in a calendar year have never been bettered by Ronaldo.
3. Messi has won more European golden boots (6) than Ronaldo (4).
4. Messi has scored more goals from outside the box (74) than Ronaldo (55).
5. Leo scored 50+ non-penalty goals in 3 different seasons (2011/12, 2012/13, and 2014/15). Ronaldo is yet to do that.
6. Messi has a better career goal per game ratio (0.81) than Ronaldo (0.73).
7. Messi comes up tops in terms of goals per game ratio for club (0.86) than Ronaldo (0.76).
8. Messi is better than Ronaldo in terms of non-penalty career goals.
9. Messi needed 123 games to score his first 100 Champions League goals, whereas Ronaldo needed 137 games.
10. Messi has scored more consecutive goals (21 games in 2012/13) than Ronaldo (11 in 2019/20).
Do you agree with these stats?
