Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi remain locked in the battle to come out on top as the best footballer in the world.
They break records year on year, with Ronaldo having sealed the best campaign of his career with a fourth Champions League winner’s medal.
It takes his tally to four for the campaign, with the UEFA Super Cup, the Club World Cup and LaLiga already in his trophy cabinet this season.
The winger’s fourth Champions League success draws him level with Messi, while he has also claimed the Champions League’s golden boot for the sixth time in his career.
Messi remains on five. Messi has won 32 career titles, 30 with Barcelona, while Ronaldo has 25 to his name – 13 coming during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.All of their titles:Messi outdid Ronaldo in front of goal last season.
The Argentine found the back of the net 54 times – 37 of coming in LaLiga – to earn him the golden boot and his fourth top scorer’s crown in the Spanish first division.
Ronaldo had a slow start, but hit top form at the key part of the 2016/17 season to end up with 42 goals from 46 games, 25 in LaLiga.
Ronaldo notched up seven braces – including in the 2017 Champions League final – and five hat tricks. Messi has 15 braces to his name, and neither of his two hat tricks came in the league.
