Messi-Ronaldo stats 2018/19: While both the players have been key to their side’s brilliant performances this season, Messi has been better on stats.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been brilliant for their sides this season.
Ronaldo left for Juventus in the summer transfer window. However, it didn’t take time for him to adjust to football in Italy as he is the highest goalscorer for Juventus across all competitions.
Real Madrid have fairly struggled in Ronaldo’s absence. The side, under Julen Lopetegui suffered its worst goalless run in the club’s history. The arrival of Santiago Solari, however, has saved the sinking ship to a certain extent at this part of the season.
So, how do the two top players in world football compare through stats?
