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.

Conversion rates with Argentina and Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo with other teams

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.

    seen all you have written about these two awesome players. This comparison in penalty taking is correct. Having said that, @Kristian Messy, i don’t understand why you should write that CR7 is a ‘pompous ass’. Go and check your stats well, watch videos on youtube, comparing the compassion of both players and their countenance towards fans “Real People”, you will see that your LITTLE Messi does not like children, has little patience towards attending to fans that go all out to reach out to him. A FACT. Please stop labelling players, they are human too, and they deserve respect and love. I don’t hate Messi, he is good at what he does, and i appreciate that, check on the videos that are available, and you will see that what am saying is a FACT, except if you are staying in Messi’s House, then i will believe you will know him better than all of us, since we are all watching them on the tubes.
