On Wednesday night, Cristiano Ronaldo had an outstanding performance for Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League, scoring twice to help the Red Devils draw 2-2 at home against Atalanta. Despite the tie, it was a positive outcome for Manchester United, who retained their lead at the top of their group table with seven points.
Because of his great performance in the encounter against the United States, the Portuguese international was finally named the match's man of the match. Despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded the Man of the Match award yesterday, he is still far behind Lionel Messi in terms of the player who has received the most man of the match medals in the Champions League.
Lionel Messi has won 63 Player of the Match honors in 152 games in the Champions League so far, whilst Cristiano Ronaldo has only won 38 Player of the Match accolades in 183 games in the Champions League.
As can be seen from the statistics above, Lionel Messi outperforms Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to earning the UCL's Most Valuable Player award.
