The two best players in the world will play against themselves in today’s game. With Lionel Messi generally accepted as the all time best player, Cristiano Ronaldo is a player that battles that position with Leo year after year.
Blaugranas stress the fact that Leo has scored 21 gaols against Real Madrid which makes him the highest goalscorer in the history of El Clasico. On the other hand, Merengues would boast Ronaldo have had the most impact against Barcelona in Camp Nou.
Even though Messi have not scored in recent Clasico games, the Argentine have recorded 21 goals in 32 games. Which means on the average Leo have scored (0.65 goals/game). This record of Leo leaves Di Stefano (18 goals) behind him. Cristiano Ronaldo is 5 goals behind Messi.
All stats favours the Argentine as he’s not only is he the highest goalscorer but also have the highest assist (13) and most hat-trick (2). But while Messi have had 15 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses against Real Madrid, Ronaldo scores better after 16 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses.
