YouTube channel WorldOfPES decided to find out and simmed a match on the game. One team was made up entirely of Messis, the other Maradonas.

So, who came out on top?

It’s not long before the first goal comes courtesy of a surging run from Messi – who hammers it past his Argentinian rival.

One Messi is scary enough but 11 of them is something else entirely

Team Maradona fights back, though – and would have scored if it wasn’t for a spectacular goal-line clearance from Messi.

Sadly, all that hard work comes to nothing and Team Messi break through to score another well-worked goal.

But a few minutes later, Team Maradona fights back – capitalising on some slack defending from Messi to hammer one home.

Is a comeback on the cards?

It certainly seems so – as Team Maradona scores an absolute worldie to bring the score to 2-2.

Team Messi bounce back early in the second half – following a long period of possession.

Messi floats a beautiful floated pass over the defence, and Messi is on hand to slot it away.

They score again shortly after – making the most of a shaky Maradona between the sticks.

At 4-2, surely it’s game over?

Nope, this Maradona we’re talking about. Eleven of them.

They claw one back to make the score 4-3.

Team Maradona’s heads begin to drop as Messi and co then fire home their sixth – in the dying seconds.

So, there you have it.
