Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two best players on the planet – but who’s better?
They ‘simmed’ five games in La Liga – with the winner being the team with the most points at the end.
Let’s see how they got on.
First up was Real Betis. Team Messi only managed a 0-2 defeat, but Team Ronaldo battles it out for a 1-1 draw.
Next is Athletic Bilbao – and Team Messi loses 5-0. Team Ronaldo gets hammered, too, finishing 4-0.
Deportivo Alavés follows – with both teams faring slightly better but still losing 1-2.
Leganes is the penultimate game, can the teams turn it around?
Team Messi loses 4-0 and Ronaldo crashes to a 2-0 defeat.
For the final game, it’s the Madrid derby against Atletico.
Team Messi loses 3-0 but Team Ronaldo registers a much closer 1-2 defeat.
At the end of the experiment, Team Messi has a -15 goal difference and zero points from five games, while Team Ronaldo has a GD of -8 but scores a single point.
So, that settles it.
If you’re ever asked, ‘Would you rather a team of Messi’s or a team of Ronaldo’s?’ you can safely say the latter is best.
