One of the things that most attracts the attention of fans before the launch of each installment of the FIFA series are the overall ratings of their favorite players, since their performance and skills on the pitch will depend on this.
It is no secret to anyone that the last decade of world football has been dominated by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, two of the greatest soccer players of all time who have broken dozens of incredible records throughout their careers.
Historically, there has been a struggle between the two to see who can be the best of all, fighting year after year to see which of the two gets the Ballon D’Or award from France Football magazine and, more recently, the The Best award given by FIFA, a battle in which Messi leads with 6 awards.
Additionally, thousands of fans daily want to buy some cheap FIFA Coins so that they can add Ronaldo or Messi to their FIFA Ultimate Team squad, especially if they appear on special FUT team of the week or team of the year cards.
Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo in FIFA 21
Just like most editions of FIFA, Lionel Messi has managed to achieve a better rating than Cristiano Ronaldo, despite the fact that last season was one of the weakest performances in the entire career of the FC Barcelona player, with fewer than 25 goals in the league and a poor participation in the UEFA Champions League.
On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo managed to be champion of the Italian League with Juventus, but also failed in the UEFA Champions League being eliminated in the quarterfinals, so neither of them had the expected success.
Why does Messi always have more points than Ronaldo?
Although it has always been said that Cristiano Ronaldo is a more complete player than Messi, the argentine surpasses him in certain characteristics of the game that end up making a difference in FIFA games.
His ability to pass the ball, his vision of the game and the ease with which he makes long passes makes a wide difference between Messi and Ronaldo in this section, which ends up grabbing a good amount of points from the final rating of each player.
In addition, Messi also has more points in marking, interceptions and dribbling, subtle advantages that end up transforming into a difference of 1 or 2 points in the final rating of each game.
However, despite the fact that Ronaldo is ahead of Messi in things like heading or finishing off with the bad foot, the other characteristics of the argentine places him behind in the final sum of each footballer.
Likewise, it is undeniable that the impact caused by both players on the pitch goes far beyond their ratings, so many fans will always prefer one over the other without paying attention to their points, since they fulfill different roles in the game.
