Do You Know: Messi Has A Better Goalscoring Record From Open Play Than Ronaldo [SEE STATS]

Lionel Messi has outscored Ronaldo in 10 of last 12 seasons without penalties

The Barcelona star and the Juventus striker have been going next to neck in the past 11 seasons with goals scored for their respective clubs perterm.

One football fan has re-ignited the claim that Messi would have beaten Ronaldo’s goal-tally ten times on 12 occasions.

According to the fan, the only time Ronaldo scored more goals than Messi with the exclusion of spot-kicks was in the 2013-14 season and the 2015-16 campaign.

During the just-concluded 2019-20 season, Messi scored 26 times from open play compared to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s 23 goals.

But Messi has insisted that he is less concerned about scoring goals and would rather help his team win trophies.

“I think less and less about scoring goals. I’m starting to step back more and more to be the creator rather than the one who finishes.

“Obviously I like scoring, and if have a chance I’ll take it, but every time I go on to the pitch I’m less focused on scoring goals and more focused on the game. I’ve never been obsessed with goals.”
