Ronaldo Has Better Goal Ratio Than Messi This Season

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo Has Better Goal Ratio Than FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi This Season

By David Kappel - Feb 19, 2018 08:00 PM @kappilinho

Up until recently, Cristiano Ronaldo was experiencing one of his worst goalscoring seasons since joining Real Madrid, but he has turned up the heat and is now even been more deadly than Lionel Messi in this campaign.

Click through the gallery above to see LaLiga's top six goalscorers so far this season.

The Portuguese has scored 10 goals in his past six games across all competitions, helping Real win five of those clashes.

Ronaldo's recent improvement in form has seen him catch up to Messi's overall tally for 2017/18, with Ronaldo sitting on 26 strikes while the Argentine has scored 27 times in all competitions.

However, when it comes to the duo's goalscoring ratios, the Portugal captain has already overtaken his longstanding rival, as Marca pointed out.

Ronaldo has scored 26 goals in 30 games across all competitions this season, which means he averages 0.87 goals per appearance after missing the opening games of the LaLiga campaign due to suspension. Messi, meanwhile, sits on 27 goals in 37 games, a ratio of 0.73 goals per game.

The Los Blancos superstar also climbed up in the LaLiga goalscoring charts, and now sits in sixth position after scoring his 12th league goal of the season on the weekend.

Ronaldo or Messi – who do you think will end the season with more goals? Have your say in the comments section below.

Stop comparing a goal poacher with a playmaker. Editor you should compare Ronaldo with the likes of Lewandoski, Suarez, Kane etc Messi roams the field if you've watched him play. Your research lacks credentials and your comparisons are vague.

Stastics don't lie. Messi is good only at Barcelona because he's always surrounded by world class players. He must move England and prove himself there. CR7 has done it all...all records broken whereas Messi has to shine with his National team.Like it not CR7 is outstanding, he works hard and believes in results.

I blame Valverde, if it wasn't for his defensive approaches the king would on 40 goals by now, even Suarez is suffering because of this cow.
