Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two best footballers on the planet, but who has the edge?

Today, I’m breaking down world football’s two biggest superstars category-by-category to definitely decide who’s the best.

On current form, both players are killing it. Messi recently became Barcelona’s all-time leading scorer at the age of 24 with his eighth hat trick of the season.

Ronaldo, on the other hand, just passed 100 goals for Real—in his third season with the club.

As for their teams, Ronaldo’s Real Madrid have a six-point lead over Barcelona in La Liga, but Barcelona won the UEFA Champions League last season.

We’ve all seen their signature goals, but just in case you need a refresher, here’s Messi’s (with a bonus side of Diego Maradona) and here’s Ronaldo’s.

Those weren’t the only categories. You’ll have to watch the video to find out the rest—and to find out who won.
