Asides goals, here is the main reason why Ronaldo is better than Messi

The debate between Messi and Ronaldo has been going on for more than a decade now, and some fans can admit that Lionel Messi won the debate due to the numerous trophies he has won, including the World Cup in 2022.

But that doesn't mean that he is better than Ronaldo in every aspect. Aside from goals, physicality, and shot power, here is the main reason why Ronaldo is better than Messi:

Ronaldo is "goal-conscious." One of the primary roles of a good striker is to be goal-conscious. Being goal-conscious is the act of making an attempt to net the ball anytime you have possession of it or are in a position to score.

Ronaldo has always been goal-conscious, even when he played as a midfielder. This consciousness has contributed to most of his success as one of the greatest footballers in the world.

On the other hand, Messi believes in gameplay, assisting, and dribbling, which is not bad but is not the primary role of a striker but rather a midfielder.

Ronaldo is willing to put the ball into the net as long as he has the opportunity to. Messi just wants to make sure his team wins even if he doesn't score a goal.
