Messi vs. Ronaldo (Golden Ball/Ballon d’Or) – Week 19

This week was the penultimate game of the season in La Liga BBVA and the title is still up for grab. One team, Atlético Madrid, has been eliminated of the race because of a 2-1 last-minute loss to relegated team Levante.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid CF held on to a 3-2 win at home against a tedious Valencia CF side and kept their hopes of being champions alive.

FC Barcelona trashed their local rivals, Espanyol, 5-0 and avoided the same fate that occurred during the 2006-07 season when, at the same period of the season, Los Blaugranas settled for a tie against the same opponent and handed the title to their arch-rival.

Champions League football was also on the agenda, earlier last week, with Real Madrid winning 1-0 at home against a lacklustre Manchester City FC in the 2nd leg of the semifinal. Cristiano Ronaldo was not involved on the scoresheet.

In La Liga BBVA, Lionel Messi scored 1 goal and 1 assist. Ronaldo added 2 goals to his tally.

For this week, the statistics are the following between the Argentine and the Portuguese international for 2016:

L. Messi 31 games 29 goals 16 assists 2 trophies available
C. Ronaldo 25 games 25 goals 8 assists 2 trophies available
Total Messi 6 games Messi 4 goals Messi 8 assists Tie

Stay tuned…
