Why Messi Is Better than Ronaldo

Why Messi Is Better than Ronaldo

There`s a lovely little article in the press this morning that points out why Lionel Messi is far better, in our opinion, than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Daily Mail has had a play with statistics and has come up with the following.

According to our source, Lionel Messi has scored 12 goals this season in 11
In those 12 games, Messi has had 48 shots which our source has worked out equates to a conversion rate of 17.39%.

Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand has only scored 1 goal all season, in what has been a poor start for his Real Madrid side.

With regards to shots taken to register that single goal, Ronaldo had a conversion rate of just 2%.

Therefore, by the wonder of mathematics, our source has worked out that if Lionel Messi were to miss his next 506 shots in La Liga, his conversion rate would still be better than that of Ronaldo, although I`m not sure how Ernesto Valverde and the Camp Nou supporters would feel about their idol missing all those shots!
