​Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi fans have been at loggerheads over the past decade, trying to one up the other party constantly as their heroes racked up the personal accolades and trophies.


For a change, it was nice to see them on the same page as a tribute video about the two players went viral on Twitter, with fans of both men coming together and appreciating their collective greatness. 

On a personal level though, the competitive rivalry between the two men seems to be well and truly alive.


Ever since Lionel Messi picked up his sixth Ballon d'Or in December of 2019 - one more than Ronaldo's five -  ​the Juventus star has been on an absolute goalscoring tear.


The Portuguese sensation broke a ​Juventus goalscoring record by scoring in his tenth consecutive Serie A game with a superb effort against Verona and has notched up 10 goals in just 6 league games this calendar year.


Lionel Messi on the other hand, created a unique piece of history of his own as he recorded a hattrick of assists in ​Barcelona's 3-2 win over Real Betis earlier in the week.


For a moment though, it was satisfying to watch the fans of both men come together and celebrate an era that has seen two remarkable talents like Ronaldo and Messi spur each other onto greatness.
