FIFA 18: Team of Lionel Messis vs team of Cristiano Ronaldos

You heard that right and the result isn't surprising

Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi, who’s better?

An age-old debate on the level of what came first, the chicken or the egg?

Now we know the answer.

YouTuber Rich Leigh, created a team comprised solely of Messi clones setting them against a team of Ronaldo clones on FIFA 18.

Two of Football’s most renowned players being pitted against each other is always fun to watch.

So what happened?

With both players being forwards, Real Madrid and Barcelona lacked the defensive skills for it to be a goalless game, which makes for some entertaining footage.

There were a lot of goals and plenty of confusion in the commentary box, which is to be expected when all the players have the same name.

Madrid took the early lead with Ronaldo scoring a belter in the 24th minute.

This was swiftly followed by another goal from Ronaldo, emphasising the clear advantage the Ronaldos had over the Messis in height.

The Messis managed to make a comeback, with Messi crossing the ball to Lionel making the score 2-1.

However, the Ronaldos overwhelming height advantage soon became too much for the Messis with Ronaldo taking a corner and Cristiano heading it in.

The game continued in this fashion with both Ronaldo and Messi scoring goals, evening out the playing field and keeping the fans on their toes.

Ultimately, the result was inevitable with Madrid (led by Ronaldo) beating Barcelona (led by Messi) 4-3.

All things considered, the match-up was very close
