IMO..pretty sure there stats are similar..maybe Ronaldo is ahead.
Mario Balotelli >>>>
Messi exerts more influence over more games. Ronaldo has been effective in the lesser matches but disappearing when it really matters. Messi is always important.
As for the numbers:
Messi was involved with 234 goals in 193 matches.
Ronaldo was involved with 215 goals in 177 matches.
So I think we can call that a tie.

Also Ronaldo's stats are marginally better if your statistics are correct.
And it's pretty easy to shine against the Dutch defense tbh. What the hell could Van der Wiel do against him? And Matthijsen ffs? Holland sucked big dick this year, so of course Ronaldo can benefit from that. He scored the winning goal against Denmark, that was an important one.
And in which big matches (Classico, CL, Copa del Rey) did Ronaldo score past years? Definitely not as much as Messi.
Nothing personal mate, just like to discuss about Messi-Ronaldo.
We all should be happy that Ronaldo and Messi were born, they're running shit right now. So we should stop comparing and start enjoying.
Erm 2/3 FA cup finals, decimated Arsenal I think in the Champions League semi league, Scored the opening goal against Chelsea in the cl final, came to Spain and has the record for quickest to 100 goals, scored against all 19 teams in La Liga etc...
Mate Ronaldo is the gawd
And yeah, Dutch were favorites. But that ignorant Bert van Marwijk refused to play with Hunterlaar and v Persie.
All nice stats from Ronaldo mate. Didn't say he's a bad player, even said he's great.
But Messi is just one step better mate. Regardless of your 'quickest goal' 'scored against all teams in La Liga'.
