The soccer world has been dominated by two incredible players: Ronaldo and Messi. The debate rages each season with fans cheering on either side of the spectrum.

Woodbury Heights Elementary School students, now is your chance to decide! Below are just some of the many amazing stats of these incredible players. Decide for yourself and let us know in the poll!

First let’s looked at goals. For the 2017/18 season, Messi scored 44 goals as of May 8th, 2018. Ronaldo only scored 34 as of May 8th, 2018. For career goals, Messi has 748 goals. He scored his 748th goal playing against Real Madrid on May 6th, 2018. Ronaldo has 400 goals. He scored his 400th goal in a game against Barcelona on May 6th, 2018.

For the 2017/18 season, Messi had 18 assists as of May 8th, 2018. Ronaldo only had 8 assists. That’s a 10 assist difference! Since Messi has more assists, we can assume that he is helping other players on his team score goals, and not saving them for himself. He is helping to build other players talents, and that is growing his team.

Now, let’s look at victories. Messi has won the FIFA Ballon d’Or 5 times, UEFA Best Player in Europe 3 times, Champions League 4 times, he’s been a Spanish champion 9 times, and won the Spanish Cup 6 times. Ronaldo has won the FIFA Ballon d’Or 5 times, UEFA Best Player in Europe 4 times, he’s been a European Champion 1 time, a Champions League winner 4 times, and an English Champion 3 times. They have had some different victories, but Ronaldo won the UEFA Best Player in Europe 1 more time than Messi.

So, we mentioned a soccer game on May 6th, 2018 with Barcelona (Messi’s team) vs Real Madrid (Ronaldo’s team.) Many people think that a game between the two teams will clear this argument up. But, different teams may have one good player and the rest bad players or vice versa. The game on May 6th ended with a 2-2 score. Luis Suarez and Messi each scored one goal for Barcelona. Ronaldo and Gareth Bale each scored one goal.

So, do you think that Ronaldo or Messi is better? Let us know in the poll!

    My nephew and friend have this debate always. My nephew likes Ronaldo and my friend likes Messi. It’s a very heated debate between them. I do prefer Ronaldo, but….. I don’t have enough information really to make a full decision. (I’m not a really big soccer fan. Sorry!)
