We consider “missed penalty” the indirect kick that Messi did against Celta on 02/14/2016, when he voluntarily used the shot to assist Luis Suarez. This is because it counts as a penalty shot but not as a penalty goal.

A widespread argument is that Cristiano Ronaldo is better kicking penalties than Leo Messi. Indeed, the success rate of Cristiano Ronaldo from the penalty spot is higher than Messi’s. He has greatly improved its success rate since playing at Real Madrid.

    Lionel Messi is the BEST THING soccer ever produced. Unfortunately, excessive smoking and drinking of alcohol is catching against him. I know not of a man who engages in UNFORTUNATE HABITS without diminishing returns setting fast on him.Such were the unsavoury tales of talents like George Best, Paul Gascoign, Michael Owen, Diego Maradona, etc. Messi is an epitome of NATURAL TALENT; CR7 is a personification of HARDWORK. When neither hardwork nor talent is disciplined, gift nose-dives. Though humble, Lionel is not disciplined. Though not humble, Cristiano is disciplined. Now, the last lap of these duos WONDERFUL CAREERS looks more interesting.
