Lionel Messi - Cristiano Ronaldo Head To Head: Leo & CR7 Score Hat-Tricks Before El Clasico

Lionel Messi (Almeria 0-8 Barcelona)

Barca equalled their biggest ever away victory in La Liga when they slaughtered Almeria. But it was Messi who stole the show with a hat-trick of goals (his sixth of the calendar year) and a pair of assists. For the sixth time this season, the Argentine opened the scoring for his side with a clinical strike on the edge of the box after exchanging one-twos with David Villa.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid 5-1 Athletic Bilbao)

Not to be outdone, Ronaldo promptly responded to Messi's hat-trick with a treble of his own to inspire his side to a rout over Athletic.

His first goal, Madrid's second, was a clinical strike on the edge of the box like Messi's first. Picking up a sublime cushioned volley from Mesut Oezil, CR7 stroked the ball with his left foot into the bottom corner.

The story is too old to be commented.

How can anyone compare these two players. Messi is in a class on the top. Ronaldo is an average player like regular strikers in Spanish La Liga.

Ronaldo is a super fantastic player with great control over the ball, but compared to Leo, he's an average player.

Nuff said lol

:) I agree with Maradona. No point in comparing: Messi is complete and sympatich, Ronaldo is a striker and an idiot.
