Messi and Ronaldo are the greatest footballers that have ever lived.
End of story.
Yeah their statistics are pretty impressive, however this is most likely down to the amount of investment in their respective teams. I mean in reality they don't play many games in a year really given the gulf in resources between them and the rest of the teams. Juventus is easily the richest team in Italy and has one 6 on the spin in Italy, similarly for Bayern in Germany. PSG in France. Now City in UK I mean racking up victories when you are easily going to beat most teams is no victory really.
As for the world cup v the Champions League. People saying the CL is harder. The difference is Portugal and Argentina can't import any player they want to help their stars.
No for me unless you have dragged your team totheir only 2 Scudetto's ever in the toughest league of all time against richer clubs like Milan (who could easily be considered the greatest club team ever) and Juve and Inter. Whilst also having won a World Cup with nowhere near a squad of the quality of Brazil or France or Germany amongst others, and when everything rested on your shoulders. As for Higlights films well I don't think Ronaldo's highlights film compares to Diego's. Messi's comes a little closer but unfortunately it's a little the same, full of rehearsed moves with that wonderful 2009-12 Barca team. MAradona never had such luxury and he never disappointed.
Ronaldo on the other hand, just look at the teams he is in. Same with Messi. One thing about Ronaldo is he keeps defying age ..... almost miraculously?
