And the duopoly and their of these two football geniuses has created a large margin between them and the other players.
They have scored goals for fun, break records, won local and international awards and their rivalry has made the rounded game a beauty to watch.
Due to their many exploits, other players have found it difficult to jostle any award with them. They outscored every player in Europe five leagues, they outperformed and outshined all.
But lately, Messi and Ronaldo seems to be slowing down gradually not only in the number of goals scored but in their contributions and influence on matches.
Messi and Ronaldo have both entered the twilight of their careers. And their fans cannot expect them to produce eye-catching performance as they've always did.
Although, many football pundits around the globe have anointed Neyma and Mbappe as worthy successors to Messi and Ronaldo but the two are far off the pedestal that Messi and Ronaldo is.
Only one player has shown like a rising sun. This player is the polish striker, Robert Lewandoski.
Robert Lewandoski is no doubt the most potent No 9 in the world presently. Lewandoski does not just appear overnight, he has been around for a very long time.
He metamorphosed from a twenty goals per season striker in Dourtmund to the pedestal of Messi and Ronaldo in Bayern Munich.
It will not be fallacious to write that potency in front of goal is one of the major yardstick with which world best is being given.
Record has it that Ronaldo and Messi were crowned world best on several occasions because of the large chunk of goals they scored and domestic trophies won.
From the foregoing, we can thus see that Lewandoski truly deserves to be crowned as the world best player.
Lewandoski has won the German Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, won the German super cup and won the German highest goal scorer.
He's also won the German best player of the season. So far Bayern Munich is still in the Champions league, Lewandoski is still on course to win the Champions league. And he's also gunning for the European golden boot
Lewandoski has sure outperformed Messi and Ronaldo this season. He deserves the world best player.
