Messi vs. Ronaldo (Infographic)

When it comes to comparing Barcelona’s Lionel Messi with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, there is little debating who the better footballer is (unless you ask Ronaldo himself).  But with Barcelona experiencing a rather slow season – by their standards – which saw them win just the Copa del Rey, while Real Madrid walked away with the La Liga championship, there has been some discussions regarding which of these two world class footballers had the better 2011-12 season.

While Messi still gets my vote for his record-breaking 73 goals in all competitions, the numbers are closer than you might think.  You can check out all of those numbers, along with some other stats and facts from their respective careers, in the infographic below.
