Everybody has that one friend who’s taken an obnoxious stance on either Messi over Ronaldo or vice versa. And if he hasn’t chosen Messi, it’s all the more obnoxious (did I just become that guy? Never mind).
Anyway, this graphic lays down how ridiculously even the two have been over all club competitions since 2009. Messi’s taken less penalties, meaning he’s scored more in the run of play, but Ronaldo has a clear edge in free kicks, which won’t surprise anyone.
Moral of the story is you can’t lose with either. Unless you chose Ronaldo. And then you lose. Sorry. Did it again.
