The football world will be at a standstill as two of the world's most prolific footballers look to go head to head as they both battle for both individual and club supremacy. While none of the players likes to lose a competition to the other, it is Ronaldo who shows more passion, hunger, and desire to not be on the losing side.

Messi on the other hand loves to play against Ronaldo and come out on top. Before the two players meeting in the Champions League on Tuesday, we take a look at who has been a better Champions League performer during their playing career.
While league fixtures between the pair have been hard to come by particularly because of Ronaldo's exit from the Spanish La Liga, there also haven't been many European meetings between them as well.
