Manchester United and PSG’s win percentages with or without their “GOATs” this season. The numbers proves Manchester United have a lower win percentage without Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG have a higher winning percentage without Leo Messi.
Both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are nearing the twilight of their careers, but the two players who have bestrode a generation aren’t done yet.
Both Messi and Ronaldo transferred clubs last summer; while Messi left Barcelona to join PSG in an emotional farewell, Ronaldo returned to Manchester United after three years in Serie A with Juventus.
It may be said that neither of their lives have gone according to plan. While Messi has yet to shine in Ligue 1, Ronaldo has been a key figure in United’s “dismal” season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.
Despite this, both players have had moments of brilliance to remind football fans of their abilities, and neither has been a complete flop at their new club – but who has been superior?
We calculated the data to see who is having the better 2021-22 season, both domestically and in the Champions League, between Messi and Ronaldo.
It’s an unsettling scenario made even more so by the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo has mainly impressed since joining Manchester United in the summer, scoring 9 goals and adding 3 assists in the Premier League, while Messi has scored 2 goals and added 10 assists in the French League.
Statistics have shown over time that Manchester United perform poorly without Ronaldo in the team with a win percentage of about 20% which proves their “GOAT” is essential to the team and winning mostly depends on him being in the team.
On the other hand, the stats shows Messi is not that essential in the PSG lineup. PSG has a winning percentage rate of about 84% without their “GOAT” Messi in the lineup.
This is obvious because Mbappe has been carrying PSG this season with 14 goals and 10 assists in the French League which is more than any PSG Player.
Ronaldo has been vital to Manchester United than Messi has been to PSG this season in terms of winning percentage with or without them in the team.
