Lionel Messi wins his sixth Ballon d’Or

In football conversations usually arises the discussion over who is better… if Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Any Google search yields hundreds of results on “Messi vs Ronaldo” or “Cristiano Ronaldo vs Messi”. Assuming that we will always make a subjective analysis, based on our personal preferences, I have made this comparison, as a statistic, rigorous and totally objective analysis, in which I will confront their individual and collective achievements. I have incorporated an aspect that many people apply: the comparison of the two while Cristiano Ronaldo played for Real Madrid (2009 to 2018).

    some of you guys don’t know anything, how can you say messi go back to attack more than CR7 don’t you watch the games,if only CR7 have better plays who can convert his passes to goal then he would have break all record… if CR7 don’t score nobody scores that is why they are suffering now.. CR7 is a winger not and attacking midfield like messi

    Wonderful analysis.. but we need to remember numbers in football does not make opinions.. it can mislead opinions. Both are great.. but Messi is in very different level when it comes to impact on his team, the importance of the pass or goal .. or how amazing it was

    no number can tell you that
    try this: compare Johan Cruyff and RV Persie with the orange team .. you will find big gap for the favor of RVP
    both are great but there only one of them is legendary

    Messi is a genious.He plays as if he belongs to a different galaxy or universe.Ronaldo may come close to Messi in terms of statistics but not in terms of class.
