Must Read

Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been heavily influential over their illustrious career in winning major trophies. Their careers are decorated with significant silverware, but who between the two has won more, that is the main question. Cristiano Ronaldo has won 33 major trophies over a glorious career in teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Portugal’s national team.

Now, let’s take a closer look at their careers to get a detailed view of how they have won the titles.

Lionel Messi(37 trophies): 

The Argentine fulfilled his long wish to win a significant trophy with the Argentine national team in 2021, as Argentina beat Brazil in the final of Copa America. This was his 36th significant silverware. In his illustrious career, he has always been the main man to drive his team to those trophies. In the list of 37 trophies, there is 4 Champions League, 10 Spanish Leagues, and one Olympic medal along with the latest victory in French Ligue 1. The little maestro collected his record-breaking 7th Balon d’Or after his move to Paris Saint Germain. However, there is a world cup missing from his cabinet.

Cristiano Ronaldo(33 trophies): 

The charismatic Portuguese returned to Manchester United after a brief and successful spell in Juventus. He won the Supercopa Italia with Juventus, and that was his 33rd major trophies won. The 36-year-old is still producing great numbers in front of the goal and proving to be a pivotal player for the red devils. In his illustrious career, he managed to win 5 Champions League titles, 7 major league titles, and a Euro cup with the Portugal national team. Only behind his biggest rival in terms of the number of Balon d’Or. However, like Messi, he also didn’t get his hand in World Cup. The Qatar World Cup will be the last chance for him after a tough battle to qualify.
