FINAL SCORE: Messi 1546 - 1570 Ronaldo
And there you have it, Ronaldo has a higher total rating than his greatest rival. Yet, the Portuguese sensation has had a few more years at the highest level, which is seen by Messi’s below-90 ratings in all three of FIFA 06, 07 and 08.

With Messi and Ronaldo only getting older andand only getting better, FIFA players across the globe have already begun anticipating when this shift will indeed come to fruition.
