Ronaldo and Messi are considered, without competition, the two biggest players of the last 20 years.

But should we start to internalize that both are already well beyond the peak?

Perhaps the end of the year for Juventus and Barcelona symbolizes more than anything the relative disappointment of these two stars.

Messi saw from the bench his team end in a 1-1 home draw with the weak Eibar and Ronaldo Hobbes with Juventus 3-0 at home against Fiorentina.



Speaking of numbers, there is no doubt who wins head to head between the two, or rather who has faded less.

Ronaldo put up much better numbers than Messi, who has experienced the hardest year of his illustrious career.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored 41 goals for Juventus in 2020, Leo Messi scored just 26. In terms of an average of goals per minute of play, Ronaldo scores every 83 minutes and Messi?

Every 150 minutes.

Ronaldo has scored three international goals compared to just 1 for Messi.

The Juventus Portuguese scored 27 goals not on penalties compared to just 18 by Messi.



Even in the area of ​​free kicks, where Messi provided goals for the Pantheon, Ronaldo beats Messi with two goals compared to just one for the Argentine.

Ronaldo won with Yuba one title compared to Messi who did not win any title.

If you belong to the Messi camp, then there is also one area where the Argentine defeated the Portuguese.

He netted 18 goals compared to just CR7’s 6 touchdowns.



It now remains to be seen whether this year marks the beginning of the end for these two marvelous footballers, is that it was just a bad year for the two.

We will in any case wish them a much better new year.
