“Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?”- Thomas Muller picks his choice amongst the GOATs

Thomas Muller

In his career, Thomas Muller of Bayern Munich and Germany has faced up against Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on numerous times for both club and country. Before Bayern Munich’s Champions League match against Messi’s previous club Barcelona, German forward Thomas Muller offered his opinions on the Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi argument.

Although Messi won the Ballon d’Or more recently, in 2021, Muller chose Ronaldo as the winner. The determining element? Results of Muller versus various opponents, including the Portuguese international.

Prior to Bayern’s Champions League match versus Barcelona at the Allianz Arena, the 33-year-old was chatting. Since the Polish striker switched from Bayern to Camp Nou, Muller will be facing another of last year’s Ballon d’Or hopefuls, Robert Lewandowski, for the first time.

Muller said: “I go for Ronaldo,” Muller told sources. “Against Messi I have a good statistic, against Ronaldo, not that good.”

Muller scored twice as a member of the Bayern team that defeated Messi’s Barcelona 8-2 in the 2019–20 Champions League. A Messi-led Argentina was defeated by Germany in the 2014 World Cup final thanks to an extra-time goal from former Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze. He played the entire 120 minutes of that match.

Cristiano Ronald or Lionel Messi The most famous argument

Messi vs Ronaldo

Since I can remember, there has been a constant discussion about Messi vs. Ronaldo. This discussion will undoubtedly continue long after both players have retired. The two superstars are 32-year-old Messi and 35-year-old Ronaldo, two players who have unquestionably outperformed in terms of numbers any other players we have seen in the past ten years. This fact makes it all the more impressive. The dispute is also fueled by the fact that the players have almost completely reversed roles: one-club guy as opposed to glory chaser, skill vs physique, teamwork or independence.

Even in this most chaotic of seasons, the two players have amassed astounding numbers throughout the course of their careers, which serve as evidence of their skill. In 1,000 matches over the course of his career, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 725 goals and provided 220 assists.

Meanwhile, in 718 games, Lionel Messi has 697 goals and 289 assists. It is impossible to dispute the two’s otherworldliness because they have demonstrated their brilliance on such a consistent basis, largely free from serious injury. The goals and assists records of these players alone are outstanding; when combined with the sheer number of appearances that the two have made, which most players do not reach in their careers, it is difficult to dispute the pair’s otherworldliness.
