Messi vs Ronaldo Trophies Battle

The numbers of Messi vs Ronaldo trophies have been both impressive, although Leo has a little ahead in league titles thanks to Barcelona’s 10 La Liga championships. The Portuguese player has won seven league championships, but unlike his Argentina counterpart, he can lay claim to have done it in three distinct nations (England, Spain, and Italy). This, in some people’s opinion, strengthens his case for the GOAT title.

Cristiano has an advantage against Leo in that league because of his love for the Champions League and his moniker, “Mr. Champions League.” CR7 has also accomplished a lot for Portugal on the international stage, taking home the European Championship and UEFA Nations League titles.

On the other hand, Messi has experienced a great deal of heartache with Argentina, who have had four poor Copa America campaigns, three of which resulted in a loss in the championship game. Before going on to win the 2022 Finalissima, he ultimately won the Copa in 2021. The Argentina player has an Olympic gold medal, but neither has taken home the World Cup.

Final thought

While Ronaldo has held 34 trophies, Messi has won 36. And he has won the Ballon d’Or trophy five times, whereas Leo has won it seven times. With Barcelona, the Argentina player has participated in 38 El Clasico matches and scored 26 goals. In his 30 El Clasico appearances, CR7 has scored 18 goals. He has only won 8 El Clasicos from 30 outings, compared to Messi’s 17 titles from 38 matches.

As you can see, Leo won more trophies than CR7 so far. But, besides the Ronaldo vs Messi trophies, who do you think is the better player? Please let us know your ideas.
