    The debate came up multiple times in the CL final thread. Don't think I've seen a thread for it.

    Messi vs. Ronaldo - Who is better?

    I'll start. Messi = GOAT.

    Ronaldo he has done it in 2 top leagues, messi hasn't simple. I hate to say it but ronaldo could be possibly the best of all time.

    Messi is a better footballer but Ronaldo has comfortably outperformed him the past few years.

    Not sure you can call Messi the GOAT anymore, he does have a few more years though.

    Also the doing it in two leagues argument is a weak one. Doesn't really mean anything.

    Both make big impacts, but clearly Messi is the better footballer.

    There was a gap that Ronaldo has definitely closed in recent years with his CL and international victories.

    If it was possible for him to be GOAT 3 or 4+ years ago, why not anymore? Unless you're arguing its now Ronaldo.

    It's Messi. But you'll never see a footballer with better desire and professionalism then Cristiano.

    Wrong phrasing. It's a much closer argument now.

    I would still argue Messi but Ronaldo has dominated trophy wise in recent years.

    Absolutely, he's an absolute beast and his desire knows no bounds.

    Messi is still the better footballer. Ronaldo may be more succesfull recently, Messi can dictate team performance, while Ronaldo is heavily dependant on team around him. Ronaldo is a born winner.

    Messi.Ronaldo was better until 2009 and he had some better moments in last two years.Different type of players,but think that Messi is more complete,had more roles in the team and he is much bigger talent.Ronaldo is a machine,but also never had " something " that Messi has.

    Messi was better. But Ronaldo owns him in last 2-3 years and will probably go into history as the better player!

    3 CL in last four years. Europe champions with Portugal.

    Messi is nowhere close to that in recent years.

    say yes Respect Me

    Needs a poll.

    Nah, Messi is still putting in better performances than Ronaldo.

    It's Real who have really come on - their squad is just unbelievable at the moment.

    Yeah again poor phrasing for me. Indivually Messi is still a machine, he's actually increased the gap on Ronaldo when it comes to statistics.

    Real are an incredible team at the moment.

    Both had their great spells in the game.We should enjoy watch them until they retire.And everyone has their own favourite,so we can't be subjective in analysis.
