Why Cristiano Ronaldo Is Better Player Against Bayern Munich In UCL Compared To Lionel Messi

Yesterday, Paris Saint-Germain traveled to Munich with hopes of beating German side, Bayern Munich to scale through to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. The Ligue 1 champions had lost 1-0 in the first leg fixture and needed to score two goals without conceding any if they are to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Paris Saint-Germain was handed yet another defeat at the Allianz Arena yesterday. Goals from Bayern Munich forwards, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, and Serge Gnabry sealed a 2-0 win for the home team who went on to qualify on a 3-0 aggregate ahead of Paris Saint-Germain. Following the loss, Argentine captain and 2022 world cup winner, Lionel Messi is yet to score against the German side in his last three appearances against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.

Lionel Messi's last three matches against Bayern Munich have been a nightmare even for Barcelona. While at the Catalonia club, Lionel Messi lost his last game against Bayern Munich in an embarrassing 8-2 scoreline. The other six times Messi faced Bayern was when he played for FC Barcelona. In his seven outings against the German giants, Lionel Messi has contributed four goals and two assists.

Messi is yet to win against Bayern Munich for three consecutive fixtures. Lost 1-0 in the first leg of this season's UEFA Champions League game, and lost 2-0 in the second leg fixture. Well, on the other hand, there's another greatest football player to ever exist, Cristiano Ronaldo who has a better record against Bayern Munich.

Cristiano Ronaldo has played against Bayern Munich nine times in the UEFA Champions League and was able to record nine goals against the German side. The Portuguese international is the only player to have scored more goals against the German club. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored nine goals in just seven UEFA Champions League games against Bayern München.

Conclusion;

Well, comparing Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's performances against Bayern Munich over time proves that the Portuguese international knows how to play against the German side better than the Argentine captain, Lionel Messi.
