Ronaldo will face Lionel Messi Saturday for the first time since the Portugal forward declared himself "the best player in the history" of football after equaling the Argentine's five Ballon d'Or awards this month.Personalities aside, Ronaldo has a tough case to make.He and Messi both have four Champions League titles, but Messi's eight Spanish league titles double Ronaldo's tally for Madrid and Manchester United. Messi has outscored Ronaldo 19-17 since Ronaldo joined Madrid in 2009 . Prior to that, Messi scored in a 2-0 win over Ronaldo's Manchester United in the 2009 Champions League final. Messi has helped Barcelona beat Ronaldo's side 13 times, to eight wins for Madrid and seven draws.Ronaldo is one goal shy of matching Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano's 18 goals against Barcelona.
