Despite equaling Lionel Messi in being named the world player of the year for a fifth time, he trails the Barcelona forward in the La Liga scoring charts, on a measly two goals to Messi's 13 strikes that have helped Barca lead Real by eight points in the standings after 14 games.Ronaldo matching Messi in winning the most coveted individual prize in the game five times will reignite the eternal debate over which of the two players is the best in the world or indeed of all time.Ronaldo won the award in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017, while Messi earned his fifth gong in 2015 .Ronaldo, meanwhile, is the top scorer in the Champions League on 114 goals, 17 ahead of Messi.
