Messi’s Biggest Moments in La Liga History image 0

Despite countless awards, Messi will always be the top scoring player in La Liga. In addition to his countless goals, he also holds several other records. For instance, no player has scored more goals in a single season than Messi, with his 474 in 520 league appearances. Man Utd’s Benzema now tops the charts for goals in a season, but Messi remains the leading active goalscorer.

Ronaldo has more assists

Among the football legends, Cristiano Ronaldo has a few advantages over his Barcelona teammate. The Portuguese international is an incredible dribbler, who is known as a poacher. The Real Madrid superstar is adept at finding the back of the net from long and short ranges. While Ronaldo is fourth in terms of career goals, he is a strong contender when it comes to La Liga assists. Ronaldo’s incredible leaping ability and cheeky footwork in the congested D-box make him an extremely dangerous threat.

If Messi had not been at Barca, Ronaldo would have won the 2011-2012 La Liga scoring title. Messi ended the season with six goals in Ligue 1 and 11 in all competitions. Ronaldo had only assisted 15 goals, while Messi had 29. Both players are highly regarded in Spain, but Messi’s vast experience and overall stats make him a better choice than his rival. He has made 329 club appearances for Barca, while Ronaldo has played for his team in 467 games.

While Messi is undoubtedly the better footballer, he is far behind Ronaldo in the assists department. His wing play was a key feature of his early career and dictated the counter attacks for his team. Now he’s the best goal scorer for Barca, but his playmaker qualities are still intact, thanks to his work under Guardiola and Xavi. In addition, Ronaldo has more assists in La Liga than Messi, which is a significant factor in deciding who is a GOAT.

Both Ronaldo and Messi have a long-term goal scoring record. Ronaldo has a better career ratio, but Messi has scored more goals than Ronaldo. Ronaldo has nineteen consecutive Ballon d’Or awards. He was named the FIFA 2014 World Cup’s Best Player and won every single award in the sport. Despite his long-term goal-scoring record, the Argentine is closer to winning the World Cup this past summer.

Although Ronaldo has more goals in La Liga, Messi’s assist record is far more stable. His goal-scoring rate is also higher. In the recent seasons, Ronaldo has been unable to break the 30-goal mark. However, Messi has a remarkable goal rate and will probably continue to be a top goal scorer in the future. It will be interesting to see how the two players compare and how their futures will unfold.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more goals in La Liga than any other player. The Portuguese winger has more than four goals in six matches and is now tied with Alfredo Di Stefano for the most four-goal hauls in a single season. The latest four-goal haul came in the UEFA Champions League match against Rayo Vallecano. The result was a 0-2 win for Real Madrid.

PSG’s newest star fouled more than Messi

It was reported that Neymar Jr. has fouled more players than Messi this season. Neymar was injured during a game against Caen in February, but the incident was later brushed aside as melodramatic. According to a report from BeSoccer, Neymar has been fouled more than Messi in the major European leagues. That is a worrying trend for the Argentine, who has yet to settle into Ligue 1.

The Argentine’s frustration over the game was palpable. After the game, PSG officials confronted the referees and questioned their decision. They claimed that Benzema had fouled Donnarumma. The disciplinary panel has opened a case against Benzema, and a decision will be made in due course. Nevertheless, the incident has already sparked a backlash among PSG fans.

Lionel Messi is the best dribbler in football history, and while Neymar Junior is a copy of his famous brother, the Argentine has also been fouled more often than his French counterpart. However, it is not clear what the future holds for Mbappe, but he is certainly worth following. The French giants are likely to find a new star to rival Messi.

Despite the score line, it was a disappointing game for the Argentine star. Messi’s tally of 123 goals in the Champions League ranks second to Cristiano Ronaldo. PSG is top of Group A with seven points, while Leipzig are bottom with no points. And despite the loss, Mbappe is on course to break the record for most fouls in a Champions League match.

The Argentine international was a welcome addition to the PSG squad after joining on a free transfer. He had previously teamed up with Neymar at Barcelona and Sergio Ramos at Real Madrid. PSG’s new star was an excellent summer signing. But his lack of touches in the penalty area has left his team lacking in chances to score. This has made his performance even more frustrating.

While Messi has become the club’s newest star, Mbappe has also inherited some of the same challenges that he faced last season. The team’s lack of coherence and clarity has been a major source of criticism for Pochettino. Still, Pochettino has made a statement about his side’s ability to compete with Real.
