When it comes to football, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is the name on most football lover's lips. The 2019/2020 season have not been the best for the two most decorated players in the world with the possibility that Lionel Messi may not win any trophy this season if Barcelona do not win the champions league. On the other hand, Ronaldo has had his ups and downs with Juventus this season. Ronaldo may well win the league this season but the fact remains that Juventus and Ronaldo himself have not played at their best this season. Let's take a look at the performance of Ronaldo and Messi this season and see who has played best.
Lionel Messi has played in Barcelona's 32 LaLiga matches scoring 23 goals, 21 assists. In the champions league, he has 3 assists, 2 goals. He has one goal in the super copa and also 2 goals, one assist in the two Copa del rey matches he played. In total Lionel Messi has played 41 matches for Barcelona this season scoring 28 goals and 25 assists. Lionel Messi and Barcelona has already lost the LaLiga title to Real Madrid and they are also out of the Copa del rey competition. Barcelona is now left with the champions league to salvage their season.
Cristiano Ronaldo has played in 29 Serie A matches scoring 28 goals and 5 assists. In the champions league, he has scored 2 goals. He has 2 goals in the Coppa Italia competition. In total Ronaldo has scored 32 goals and 5 assists for Juventus this season. Ronaldo and Juventus are still on cause to win the Serie A title and the champions league.
With the above stats, who do you think has played best of the two football geniuses this season. Personally, I think Ronaldo is best of the two with the Serie A title in hand, the possibility of winning the champions league and with 32 goals scored thus far. Not forgetting Ronaldo's incredible record when it comes to the champions league knock out stage. Some call him penaldo now but the truth remains that penalty is very much part of football and it is not easy to convert as many penalties as Ronaldo has converted for Juventus this season.
