'Ronaldo, Messi Would Score Less In Italy'

Inter defender Miranda has claimed that Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi would not score as easily in Italy.
 
 
Both Ronaldo and Messi are their respective clubs' all-time top goalscorers, with the Portuguese netting a La Liga best of 30 this season while the Argentine has scored eight fewer.
 
Despite their impressive goalscoring ability, Miranda is convinced that the duo would not dominate the final third if they plied their trade in Serie A.
 
"They are both fantastic players and would score a lot of goals in every league," Miranda told GloboEsporte.
 
"However, here in Italy, they would not arrive in front of the net as often as they do in Spain because teams are a lot more organised tactically."
 
 
The Brazilian moved from Atletico Madrid in the off-season, after a four-year spell at the Spanish outfit.
