Who is more influential for the Team
Both the players are carrying their respective teams to glory in all formats. Barcelona are run away leaders in La liga with 15 points difference and we can safely assume that La Liga title is theirs. While Messi scored 2 goals to help them get into the Quarterfinals of the Champions league when he outclassed AC Milan at Nou Camp while Ronaldo scored in both legs against Manchester United to get a ticket to Quarterfinals for his team. and Ronaldo also helped beat barcelona in the Copa Del Rey semifinal when he scored in his 7 consecutive El Classico. So we can say that both players are equally influential for their teams.
Messi vs Ronaldo Who is a better Team Player
LIONEL MESSI: Well Messi gel in perfectly well with Barcelona team when they are playing with Xavi Hernandez and Andreas Aniesta and he not only score goals but his number of assists are great aswell. When he puts on a Argentina shirt he can not perform they way he does at Barcelona. So we have to say that Messi is a better team players than Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo: Ronaldo since his Manchester United days has been labeled as a bit selfish player, some expert would say well thats they way he plays but he often get into confrontations with team mates as it has happened in the past. With Ruud Van Nistelrooy in Manchester United and as the reports suggest in Spain that he dont get along very well with his spanish team mates in Real Madrid. He often shoot from insane angles sometimes it goes in but often he will leave his unmarked team mate in better position left unhappy. having said that thats the way he plays and if being selfish will get any manager half the goals he scores in a season they would love to have a player like Ronaldo.
Good thing is Ronaldo and Messi are playing in the same era, for two of the biggest rivals in football Real Madrid and Barcelona and we see go head to head 3-4 times in a season. last year Ronaldo helped his team to win the La liga title while Barcelona could only win Copa Del rey. Messi have won 4 back to back FIFA Ballon O Dor awards but that does not mean he is head and shoulders ahead of Ronaldo.
Conclusion: Who is better ? Ronaldo or Messi ?
Well thats the question on everybodys lips in last few seasons, from experts on TV, in football news and kids playing in play ground. But its hard to tell before their career finishes. But we would leave you with this voting poll and this amazing video of two of the best players who ever graced this beautiful game.
World greatest footballers on 21st century and maybe the two best players ever but certainly the best rivalry in sport of football. Messi who win the FIFA Ballor O dor award couple of months ago had the record breaking calendar year 2012. he broke all kinds of records in process of scoring more goals in 1 year than another player in the history, he beat the record set by German player Gerrd Mullur who scored 86 goals in one year but Messi went on to score 91 and its hard to think anybody apart from himself or Ronaldo to break this record anytime soon.
