Ronaldo dominates Messi (again)


Like last year, Cristiano Ronaldo scored more goals than his rival Lionel Messi in 2021, with 47 goals against 43.

To the delight of football fans, the distant stratospheric duel between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo continues. If the Argentine genius won his 7th Ballon d’Or, at the age of 34, thanks mainly to his coronation in Copa América with Argentina, the Portuguese crack, who will soon be 37 years old, continued to stack goals in 2021, with Juventus, the Portuguese selection then Manchester United.

“CR7” did very well, finishing 47 goals for club and national team over the calendar year, after his last goal scored with the Red Devils against Newcastle (3-1), Thursday night in the Premier League. He ends up behind Robert Lewandowski (69 goals), Kylian Mbappé (51) and Erling Haaland (49), but tied with Karim Benzema (47) and therefore in front of “La Pulga”, which has found the net 43 times (all the same).

Ronaldo had already beat Messi last year, with a much larger gap, 44 units to 27. In this duel of completely crazy statistics, the former number 10 of Barça has obviously taken a lot of lead during his career, having exceeded 50 achievements in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, with this legendary year 2012 at 91 goals. Can he again cross this bar of 50 achievements while he shines especially by his inertia at PSG?
