While many fans have gone on and spoken up stats relating to goalscoring prowess comparisons between the two strikers, they have failed to understand that Mbappe has often not played as a striker for Paris Saint-Germain and has mainly started on the wings, whereas Haaland has always stayed central.


The only comparison one can make between Haaland-Mbappe and Messi-Ronaldo is that both sets of players have a couple of years' age gap between them with Haaland being younger than Mbappe and Messi being younger than Ronaldo.
