Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo Comparison

From Pele and Diego Maradona to Zinedine Zidane, football has seen some phenomenal and gifted players through the years. The current football era is dominated by two giants: Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo. As a true football fan, you must have been at least once engaged in the intense debate about Ronaldo vs Messi rivalry.

Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine Lionel Messi are widely regarded not only as the two best players of their generation but also, by many in the sport, including players, sports analysts, and fans, as the greatest of all time.

To ensure a certain background, Lionel Messi is 32-years-old and has played in a total of 836 matches in his career for club and country, while Cristiano Ronaldo is two years older and has competed in 982 games. The Argentine legend has scored a total of 682 goals, compared to Ronaldo's 706. The Portuguese striker has registered 220 assists, compared to Messi’s 280.

Physically, Ronaldo is 1.86 meters tall, while Messi is shorter and less imposing than the Portuguese star measuring 1.69 meters tall. Leo Messi does not usually go up to finish off the net, although he has scored some goals like that, while Ronaldo's jump allows him to score with a header due to its greater height.

Both Ronaldo and Messi have impressive player statistics, but one-team man Messi and phenomenal Portuguese Ronaldo have different playing styles. Messi is considered the fastest football player alive when it comes to short distances, while Ronaldo is known for his extraordinary abilities in long runs.

Ronaldo is an electrifying and explosive player, dominant in the air and his headers are a serious threat thanks to his NBA star-like jumping ability. His combination of great dribbling skills and powerful shooting with either foot terrorizes defenses.

The Portuguese is best known for scoring incredible goals from all angles. The Argentine is the greatest dribbler of all time, and a creative forward.

Messi and Ronaldo are amongst the 28 players in the football history to score over 500 career goals, currently ranked at 6th (Ronaldo) and 7th (Messi) respectively.

Messi vs Ronaldo red cards

Barcelona captain Messi has only two red cards on his name. Messi's first red card came on his senior international debut for Argentina against Hungary in 2005. The Blaugrana star was controversially sent off in Argentina's Copa America 2-1 victory over Chile in July following a heated confrontation with Gary Medel. Messi has never been sent off while representing Barcelona.

By contrast, Ronaldo has been sent off 11 times in his illustrious career. CR7 was sent off four times while with Manchester United, six times with Real Madrid and once with Juventus.
