Why Messi is better.
- Higher goal ratio(the number of goals divided by the number of games). Messi scores every 100 minutes, while Ronaldo is 112. 
- Technical Ability
- Speed
- Creativity
- Passing
- Defense - WhoScored.com
"In the 2016-17 La Liga season, Ronaldo was more likely to commit a foul than generate an interception and produce a successful tackle. He had 0.6 fouls per match, compared to 0.3 interceptions per match and just 0.2 tackles. Messi had much better defensive metrics than Ronaldo. He committed only 0.4 fouls per game but was more likely to generate a tackle (0.7 per game). Those are La Liga numbers, but both players had consistent numbers in the Champions League as well. Messi’s defensive ranking last season was 8.42 (out of 10), while Ronaldo’s was just 7.61."
- Team play, 248 assists
- Discipline
Ronaldo - 131 yellow, 9 red
Messi - 68, ONE highly criticized (many pundits call unfair) red card 
- Accuracy WhoScored.com
"Ronaldo scored 25 goals in 2016-17 but needed 5.6 shots per game to achieve them (160 total).  In contrast, Messi scored 37 goals on fewer shot attempts, notching just 5.3 attempts per game (178 total). Those shooting percentages work out to about 21 percent for Messi, and just 16 percent for Ronaldo."
