The Messi-captained Barcelona failed to win a single trophy during the 2019/2020 season capped by a humiliating Champions League exit following Bayern Munich’s thrashing.

Losing to Bilbao is utterly unacceptable by Barcelona chiefs as the club now becomes a joke of fans on social media.

The loss has raised the lid on Messi’s competence when it comes to final matches as he is compared with his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

On social media, fans pointed out how the Argentine was losing the Spanish Super Cup while CR7 bagged his third consecutive Champions League title at the same age of 33.

Statistics of both players in final matches have shown that Ronaldo has won 70% of the finals he played compared to Lionel Messi’s 65.71 record in finals.

The Argentine has suffered 12 defeats in final matches throughout his career which includes three for his country, while Ronaldo has failed to win 9 finals and once for Portugal.

No doubt, the pair remain the best footballers of their generation and the media will continue to take every opportunity to compare both.

However, as far as individual contributions are concerned, you’ve got to give it to Messi because his rate of producing goals and assists in finals completely overwhelms that of his older rival.

Messi has scored 10 more goals and provided 12 more assists than Ronaldo in finals, which makes for a huge lead of 22 goal contributions, despite having only played in five more of them.
