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.

    In penalty shootouts outs they’ve had 3 each messi scored against Holland Chile (1st final) missed 1 Chile (2nd final) cr7 missed against Chelsea scored against atleti and didn’t get to take 1 cuz the idiot wanted the glory 5th against Spain and probably helped his side go out. With regard to claim 1 is better than the other at takin them. It’s a redundant argument they’ve both missed over 20 each. Embarrassing stats for both. Tho messis record in shootouts is slightly better his rotten luck means his team failed in 2 finals but ronaldos amazing luck means his team won him 2 finals. And cr7s most famous moments are 2 penalties.

      not only this, but he dives 10 times better than Messi and all these penalties cr7 has are from dives…In addition Messi was less effective penalty taker when he was younger, but not now, while cr7 has the opposite tendency…and Messi is playing 2 years less than penaldo and not as a striker but as a midfielder and a play-maker even after Neymar’s departure…penaldo is only better physically looking

    its so ironic how messi is just a quite humble guy and his fans on the other hand talk more than ronaldo actually does. Its really funny how they call him penaldo when in la liga him and messi have had round about the same number of penalties, people just seem to hate him for everything he does, even for converting more penalties than messi.. i guess human nature prefers someone who is outstanding and humble about it

      still messi is better than ronaldo

      No, we call him Penaldo not because he’s bad at penalties,but because he takes literally every single one and dives to win a penalty. That’s why he’s taken about 20 more than Messi

    Where did you acquire these statistics? I’d like to be able to compile a list of the most penalties missed by a player. Top ten probably.
