UEFA Champions League

Piers Morgan might be too biased to say that Messi would pick CR7 if he needed a last-minute goal

Piers Morgan, a popular English broadcaster, has stated that Lionel Messi would choose Cristiano Ronaldo if he needed someone to score a last-minute goal at any cost.

Piers Morgan made the statement on Twitter shortly after Cristiano Ronaldo capped a sensational Man Utd comeback as the hosts fought back from a 2-0 half-time deficit to see off Atalanta on another memorable Champions League night.

Morgan said Ronaldo's ability to come up with late goals is one thing that sets him apart from Messi, and that if he needed someone to score a last minute goal to save his life, he would go for Ronaldo.

Well, I think Piers Morgan might be too biased with his statement given that Ronaldo is slightly edging Messi when it comes to late goals. Below are their statistics.

80+ min winners

Messi: 26 winners (2.77% of matches)

Ronaldo: 30 (2.76%)

85+ min winners

Messi: 16 (1.7%)

Ronadlo: 21 (1.94%)

90+ min winners

Messi: 8 (0.85%)

Ronaldo: 10 (0.92%)

I feel Piers Morgan was baised with his statement, given that Ronaldo edges the later winners but the numbers are pretty tight!
