It’s that time of year again as EA Sports enters the biggest debate in sport by comparing Ronaldo and Messi in every single aspect of their game on FIFA 21.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have dominated the football world for over a decade, pushing each other to unimaginable heights. Their achievements in the sport are unparalleled.
One of the most notable traits the pair share is their goal-scoring prowess. They’ve proven to be formidable scorers, regularly hitting the 40+ goal mark for their respective clubs in each season. Countless records have been shattered in the process.

In the eyes of many, even those who have witnessed Pele and Diego Maradona in their prime, the duo are the greatest. But as to who is the No.1 between them remains an unresolved. Some of the football purists got for Messi, while others find Ronaldo’s record-breaking achievements too hard to ignore.
Truth is we may never get a definite answer, with statistics being our best bet and who better than FIFA 21?
Just because Messi has a better overall rating of 93 doesn’t make him the best player. You can argue otherwise, but in football, there are many different aspects that need to be taken into account which EA Sports have provided in the latest FIFA 21 ratings.
