The Argentine won this season’s Golden Shoe race after netting 36 times in LaLiga, equating to 72 points in the ESM ranking, while Ronaldo failed to make the top 10.
The Juventus forward netted 21 goals in his debut Serie A campaign, which was his lowest league tally since 2008/09 when he was still with Manchester United.
Messi, meanwhile, claimed his third successive European Golden Shoe and became the first player to lift the prize six times, extending his own record over Ronaldo, who has won it on four occasions.
The Blaugrana captain lifted the Golden Shoe in 2009/10, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19, while the Portuguese collected it in 2007/08, 2010/11, 2013/14 (shared with Luis Suarez) and 2014/15.
Ronaldo was the first player in history to win the accolade four times, but he has since been overtaken by his arch nemesis.
Overall and despite being two-and-a-half years younger, Messi has scored two goals more than Ronaldo during their respective club careers, with the 31-year-old sitting on 603 strikes and his 34-year-old rival on 601.
The latter, though, lifted two trophies in 2018/19, while Messi had to make do with the LaLiga title.
