It is known that one can't talk about football without mentioning Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. This is the biggest football rivalry of all time as if you love football you're either a Ronaldo man or a Messi Man.
Although they're both great players, they're always trying to outshine each other on the pitch by earning various individual awards and achieving hard or impossible feat.
Before we continue, lets take a brief look at their biographies.

He is Often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Ronaldo has won five Ballons d'Ors and four European Golden Shoes, both of which are records for a European player. He has won 29 major trophies and he is one of the few recorded players to have made over 1,000 professional career appearances and has scored over 734 senior career goals for club and country.
Last night Ronaldo broke three records when he side Juventus went up against title chasers Lazio, and he found the back of the net twice.
Ronaldo now happens to be the first Juventus player since 1952 to score 30 goals in a Single Seria A season. Secondly he is now the Fastest player to reach 50 Serie A goals since his 1985 birth (he did so in 61 games), and thirdly Ronaldo is now the first player ever to score 50 goals in the English, Italian & Spanish leagues.
Isn't he wonderful?
He was commended by Fifa on their twitter page.
With these achievements I think for now he has an edge over Messi.
