After two goals from free kicks against Celta, a lot of people are asking if Messi has more goals in this way than Cristiano Ronaldo. Next, the classification of free kick goals from Messi vs free kicks goals from Ronaldo.

The differences are usually small between geniuses. The Messi-Cristiano battle has been going on for more than a decade, every weekend, every goal, every dribble. The Argentine and the Portuguese want to always be remembered and the truth is that their merits are almost insurmountable. To this day, the two scored 600 goals in their career.

 They've stung each other in every way. Scoring more braces, hat tricks, Champions League goals, goals from free kicks... At this point, it is time to rescue a statistic that some thought after the double free kick goals of Messi against Celta. Who carries more goals from free kicks, Messi or Cristiano?

Well, Michel Acosta has been in charge of detailing the data of both players since the start of their careers, both at club level and at national team level. And despite the important amount of goals from free kicks that Messi has scored in recent seasons, Cristiano still dominates in this area. 

The now-Juventus player has scored 53 goals in this way, one more than Messi. Cristiano's goals from free kicks can be summarised by: 13 for Manchester Untied, 32 with Real Madrid and 8 with Portugal. On his part, Messi has scored 46 with Barcelona and only 6 with Argentina. Obviously, the years in the Cristiano elite are more than Messi's. That's why the Portuguese had more options to raise his personal account.

The truth is that the number '10' has made up the gap in an astonishing way in the last few seasons. To put things into context, the end of the 2016/17 showed Cristiano accumulate 51 goals compared to Messi's 34. Therefore, the sum in the last three seasons shows a defeat for Messi: 2-18.

This campaign, for example, Cristiano has still not scored from a direct free kick, although he almost did against Lokomotiv. Ramsey took the goal from him on the line. It is true that in Juventus he has met with excellent pitchers such as Pjanic or Dybala, but the truth is that Messi has turned in recent years a foul in a child's play. No one can mess with him.
