Fans Are Already Calling Kylian Mbappe Vs Erling Haaland The New Cristiano Ronaldo Vs Lionel Messi

Fans Are Already Calling Kylian Mbappe Vs Erling Haaland The New Cristiano Ronaldo Vs Lionel Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo's duel with Lionel Messi was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime case of two all-time greats going head-to-head - but two brilliant young attackers are drawing comparisons.

Kylian Mbappe, already a World Cup winner at 21, was widely viewed as the next great striker of his generation. But the red-hot form of 19-year-old Erling Haaland, who already has seven goals in 11 games since his January move to Borussia Dortmund, has seen fans call this the next Ronaldo vs Messi.

The young duo faced off in the Champions League this week, just as Messi and Ronaldo have done so often in their club careers. Haaland was the outstanding winner on this occasion, his powerful double giving Dortmund a 2-1 win over PSG - although he was incredibly zen about it.

Mbappe registered an assist for Neymar's goal but was otherwise quiet. However he has a chance for revenge when the two sides meet in Paris for the second leg.

Kylian Mbappe Asked Who He'd Choose Between Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo In His Team

published at7 months ago

Many have pointed out that Haaland has fired in an incredible 60 goals in his first 100 club games, while Mbappe netted only 27. But the French attacker hasn't always played as an out-and-out striker, unlike the Leeds-born Norwegian who's confessed to watching and rewatching his goals.

Like Ronaldo and Messi, there's an age gap of just a couple of years between the two players. And - while it's setting the bar ridiculously high to compare them to a pair who share 11 Ballon d'Or awards between them - it's impossible not to get excited.

Can Mbappe vs Haaland become the Ronaldo vs Messi? And if so, who's likely to come out on top? Let us know in the comments below.
