Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have confirmed new transfers to a different club this season. Ronaldo returns to Manchester United after Barcelona move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain. The statistics you have provided so far to third clubs have a surprising gap for many.
Typically, these two players are close to each other in most stats. When one starts, the other is second. Surprisingly, this season seems to have changed that. Messi doesn't seem to have had a good time in all of his footballing career. Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, will not give up on Manchester United.
Although both players are vying for another Ballon d'Or, Messi's chances of winning the seventh title seem to be higher if Ronaldo wins the sixth. The statistics below show the big difference between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi this season.
Here are the season statistics for both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
1. League goals.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored for Manchester United in this year's Premier League. In fact, the player has won many awards. He has scored 4 goals for Manchester United so far. In the first month, he even won the Player of the Month award.
Lionel Messi, meanwhile, is struggling in the French league. He has played at least four games so far but has not scored a single goal. This means that Ronaldo has 4 league goals, but Messi has nothing.
2. Champions League.
In the Champions League, Lionel Messi played three games for Paris Saint-Germain and scored three goals. However, he is still behind Ronaldo, who has scored five goals in four Champions League games for Manchester United.
At club level, Ronaldo has scored nine goals this season. He is Manchester United's top scorer with 4 Premier League goals. He is also the top scorer in the Champions League. None of his nine goals came from the penalty spot.
Messi's club goals this season have been in three Champions League games. One of his goals was a penalty kick. So without penalty, Ronaldo scored 9 goals and Messi scored 2 goals.
While Messi is still struggling to stay, Cristiano Ronaldo could widen the gap as club football continues after the international break.
In conclusion, the rivalry between these two great footballers is unlikely to end any time soon.
Almost everything Messi and Ronaldo do is judged to support why they are better than each other. According to the above statistics, Cristiano Ronaldo has made a big difference between himself and Lionel Messi.
