Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo: Analyzing Who's Better in 20 Categories

Lionel or Cristiano? Ronaldo or Messi?

The eternal question remains: who's better? This article will try to approach this question by analysing 10  technical and physical categories and deciding a winner in each one.

By tackling this topic (yet again), I expect both Messi and Ronaldo fans to disagree with me.

But I will try my best to remain objective and to declare a winner for the attributes I have decided to compare them on—both physical and technical attributes (shooting, acceleration, strength...) and "intangible" ones (mentality, marketability, ego...). 

The winner will be determined by points on each category they win.

Want to know who'll win in speed?

Or in free-kick ability?

What about sportsmanship?

Will it be Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?
