FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been in superb free-kick form in LaLiga this season, while his Real Madrid rival has not scored once. Here are the 10 leading set-piece scorers across Europe’s top five leagues this season!

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the 10 top free-kick scorers in league football this season, according to Transfermarkt.

Messi and Ronaldo have been compared to one another since the beginning of their rivalry more than a decade ago, but in this campaign, the Argentine has undoubtedly been more effective from dead ball situations outside the box.

The Argentine has scored six free-kicks in LaLiga this season, while nobody else has come close to the 30-year-old.

Ronaldo has failed to find the back of the net from a single set-piece in the 2017/18 campaign, but has still scored more career free-kicks than his counterpart.

Tied in second place is Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar, Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso and Lyon’s Nabil Fekir, who have all scored three free-kicks in their respective leagues this season.

Roma’s Aleksandar Kolarov and FC Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho follow with two league free-kick goals each, though both of the Brazilian’s strikes came for Liverpool. Manchester City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne has also struck twice from free-kicks this season
