6. More than 50 goals in six consecutive seasons
One of the most important thing in success is consistency. To prove that a player is word class we need to us the consistency to measure his success. Ronaldo's success is largely because of his consistency.
Ronaldo has scored more than 40 goals since 2009.
He was the fastest player to score 150 and 200 in the La Liga goals.
He was the first person to score more than 50 goals in 6 consecutive seasons.
He did this for Real Madrid from 2010/11 to 2015/16.
Messi so far managed to score 50 goals in 5 season but not consecutively.
5. Top scorer in UEFA Champions League
Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the Champions League history.
look at this record in the screenshot.
He is the only football player to score in 8 consecutive Champions League games plus the fact that he is the only player to score more than 15 goals in a single season.
CR7 has scored 114 goals in Champions League, that is 17 more than Lionel Messi.
He is the biggest champions league player ever.
4. 60 goals in 4 consecutive calendar years.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 60 or more goals in a calendar year four times consecutively from 2011 to 2014 while the Argentine star has only managed to do this 2 occasions in his career 2010 and 2012 but not consecutively.
3. International goals & success
Cristiano Ronaldo has helped his country to win the UEFA European Championship in 2016 and the UEFA Nations League final in 2019 this year.
Messe has also helped his country to silverware but has never held them to win a final.
The Portuguese captain has scored 85 goals while the Argentine only has 65 goals.
2. Goals-per-game ratio in La Liga (min 250 games)
Cristiano Ronaldo played 279 La Liga games and scored 289 goals making his scoring ratio-per-game 1.04while Lionel Messi has played 401 La Liga games and scored 366 goals making his scoring ratio-per-game 0.91.
That 0.13 difference will make CR7 the king of goal scoring.
1. Success in different leagues
Messi has not tasted any other league apart for La Liga, therefore, all his success in the Barcelona.
We have seen good players closing from one league to another and flopping.
And I do not think he can ever lever Barca because if he does, he will never shine.
Messi himself know that is why he can never be attempted to leave for the Premier League or another league.
Ronaldo has tested and won the Premier League titles with Manchester United, the La Liga and now is his testing the Italian Serie A.
