GOATS: Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi
Having shared 11 of the past 12 Ballon d’Ors, both Ronaldo and Messi are undoubtedly the shining stars of football. Messi is currently winning the fight when it comes to Ballon d’Ors. After winning last year’s Ballon d’Or, Messi now has six as compared to Ronaldo’s 5.
The individual successes of both Messi and Ronaldo inevitably result in continuous statistical analyses of the two. These statistical analyses also result in evolving predictions.
The prediction most debate about is whether Lionel Messi will pass Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to total goals scored. With age on his side and the rate of his current goal-scoring, it seems that Messi will indeed pass Ronaldo.
With continuous statistical analysis going on, an intense rivalry has grown between the two. Each hopes to outdo the other to recognize himself as the best of the generation.
Hot-Headed Ronaldo vs Shy Messi
Although there are several reasons to debate in favor of one or the other when it comes to who is the better footballer, there is no debating when it comes to who is hotter headed. Ronaldo is clearly hotter headed as he has 11 red cards as compared to Messi’s 2.
When it comes to shyness, it may seem odd to categorize either Ronaldo or Messi as shy. They are extremely confident in their technique and their style of play. However, when it comes to post-match interviews or other social interactions, Messi is much shyer as compared to Ronaldo.
Some other stark differences in characteristics include agility, height, trickery and strength. For example, Messi is more agile and has better trickery than Ronaldo. On the other hand, Ronaldo is superior in terms of strength and height.
Characteristics Crucial in a Wrestling Contest
As wild as it may sound, let us imagine these two GOATS now in a wrestling contest. Who will win? Will it be the agiler Messi or the stronger Ronaldo? Since it is wrestling, one might believe that the one with more strength will be the outright winner. However, the outcome is not that easy.
Although Ronaldo may dominate the wrestling contest if he gets in control of Messi, if Messi can use his agility and trickery, he could make it awfully difficult for Ronaldo.
Moreover, Ronaldo’s hot-headed personality may cost him as well if he loses his cool and gets overly aggressive, as he may get himself disqualified.
Even though Messi may have more strikes using his quickness and agility, it will not be that easy to defeat Ronaldo. Messi will need to ensure that he is clinical with his moves because one mistake and Ronaldo could make him pay.
Hence, the contest could go either way depending on who gets the first strike, and how clinical each is.
