Listen to the commentator! Messi's biggest fan you think?
31 goals this season in less minutes/games than Ronaldo. 1 more than C Ron. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has scored 7 penalties while Messi has scored 1 and missed another. Every stats says that Messi is more effective than Ronaldo. Not that there's anything wrong with that... I'm just saying...
Messi is a better player I think. Even if you look at ability.
lmao, whats ronaldo got to do with anything that was in this article?
Would love to see messi swap with ronaldo :)
Nah.... Ronaldo would literally suck in Barca. Sure, he'd still score goals but still, he can't dribble into the penalty box like Messi can. When he plays with RM, they play counter attacking and so, sometimes the other team is caught after a break leaving only two men defending. Ronaldo would take advantage of that with his speed. Against Barca, it is impossible for such a thing to happen. We play possession football. We wait. We don't cross the ball, neither do we shoot from long distance. So Ronaldo's headers and his speed will not be put to much use in the Barca system. Would hate to see Messi play for Madrid though. Btw, just to prove my point, Ronaldo would literally be a David Villa in Barca. He'd still score, but he's not very effective, he just doesn't seem to bring his full complete package which we wanted to see from him.
