Messi and Ronaldo have sat atop the football world for over a decade now and fans still fight over who the true GOAT is.
One of the criteria they’re judged on is mentality and getting their teams through crisis – something Ronaldoalbi7 thinks Messi lacks compared to Ronaldo.
His video shows the six-time Ballon d’Or winner’s reaction during Barcelona’s 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League, attempting to win the game on his own.
Messi looks to his teammates for inspiration, cutting a frustrated figure as Barcelona crash out of the tournament 4-4 on away goals.
But in the case of Ronaldo, he attempts to keep his Real Madrid teammates motivated by gesturing and telling them to keep it up against Juventus.

‘Los Blancos’ were 3-3 on aggregate with the Italian giants, only needing one goal to advance to the Champions League semi finals.
‘CR7’ would score a penalty in the 97th minute to make the score 3-1 on the night, 4-3 on aggregate and send Madrid through.
