Messi is a better goalscorer than Ronaldo? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The question about who is the better player is just pointless. This should've never been a debate and the fact that some people, mostly Real Madrid fans, wanted their star to get more attention can't change it. However the debate who is the better goalscorer is very interesting imo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ronaldo is known for his goalscoring abilities and exactly on them is based the comparison between the two. CR is an attacking killer and a beast in the box. He can score headers, free kicks, penalties, right foot goals, left foot goals, volleys etc. Has tons of records on his name and is considered among the best of all time.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Messi isn't known as the best goalscorer (of course that's in comparison with his other abilities) but we will see if it should be like that. Nowdays Leo is the best free kick taker and the best goalscorer by a mile because Cristiano started slightly to disappear. On the other hand the Barcelona captain has always been amazing nine, false nine to be exact, even in Ronaldo's peak. He has many important goalscoring records, you know that.
So in my option Messi is THE BETTER goalscorer. Leo has scored 640 goals in 787 matches (~ 0.81 per match) compared to CR7's 673 goals in 940 matches (~ 0.71 per match). In this rivalry he also gets points from his impr(m)essive milestones. I will repeat that 91 goals in a year, I'm sorry but...that's not normal. Another important one is most in La Liga's history. I know what you will say. "But Ronaldo played only 9 seasons there". Yes but Messi outscored him in this 9 seasons...
However, Leo can be the better goalscorer but I think that CR is definitely is THE MORE COMPLETE one. He isn't better in free kicks imo but he is an incredible taker and that's a fact. He is better in headers, he is better penalty taker and he's better with his weak foot (but honestly I was very impressed by Leo's weak foot, it's way better than everyone thinks).
En general, Leo is the better, CR is more complete. This is MY OPINION. What do you think guys?
