'Ronaldo Is Far Ahead Of Messi Right Now!'

'Cristiano Ronaldo Is Far Ahead Of Lionel Messi Right Now!'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 26, 2018 07:29 AM @KurtLaduma

Superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are always compared to one another, but it has now been claimed that the Real Madrid talisman is far ahead of the FC Barcelona forward at the moment.

Click through the gallery to see Ronaldo in action against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night!

Despite a difficult start to the season, the Portuguese has proven he has far more left in the tank, having recently gone on a run of scoring in 12 consecutive matches.

Ronaldo, who was in action against Bayern Munich in Real's 2-1 UEFA Champions League first leg semi-final win on Wednesday, has been hailed by Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, who believes not even Messi comes close to the 33-year-old at the moment.

"He’s reinvented his game into his 30s," he said, according to Express.

"He’s become almost an out-and-out goal striker in terms of the way he plays.

"His numbers are incredible, his skill is incredible. Overhead kicks, goals in these massive games, more than anyone in world football.

"It’s difficult to compare anyone, obviously Lionel Messi.

"But in terms of what he’s actually done, in terms of actual numbers, he’s clear at the minute without a doubt."

Ronaldo has scored 24 LaLiga goals in 25 matches this season, while he has hit the back of the net on 15 occasions in the Champions League in just 11 games.

CR7 Now 7th Among All-Time Top Goalscorers Across All European Leagues

Overall, the forward has scored 42 goals in 39 matches for Real in this campaign, and has contributed with a further seven assists.

Do you agree with Lampard’s sentiments? Let us know in the comments section below.

Honestly speaking, how do people measure a quality player? Do we consider, skill, assists, scoring abilities, technicality, tactical positioning, teamwork or all of these? If the answer is the latter, then Messi is the best there is. Look, Madrid has quality players who can win anything without Ronaldo, hence the team's performance is not generally based on a single individual. On the other hand, Barca's most wins were Messi initiated and crafted, hence Barca are the La Liga Champs. Based on this, who is the best? Messi of course. Forget Lampard's rhetoric. He is a regionalist this one. Ronaldo is a European, Messi a South American. Again, let us not forget the Anglo-Argentine War for the control of the Falkland Islands, and Maradona's Hand of God goal when they defeated England in the quarterfinals of the 1986 World Cup. All these factors weigh in against Messi being spoken about glowingly by the British.

Indeed Lampard is not uttering drivel, Messi has won the league and copa del rey. While is yet to win anything Ronaldo scores for Real, Messi makes Barca play and he also scores for them. You do the math.

Its a matter of one European supporting another. Just like Many african supporting Salah. I only saw Cr7 last night when he controlled the ball using his arm and when he missed a shot-at-goal so much that the ball went out as throw in. But i understand, he doesn't show up for his teammates when he doesn't score
