When all is said and done, it's the Brazilian who comes out on top in the ultimate showdown.
Cristiano is known for his remarkable physical talents and it's a shock to see Ronaldo challenge him so well in that department.
However, the real debate comes when comparing both men's ability in the real world.
Ronaldo is still one of the world's best players at the age of 35 and while 'R9' fell away as he got older due to injury, there's no denying how terrifying he was for defenders in his prime.
Nazario discussed the duo being compared in an interview with Sky Sports Italia and when asked who is the 'real Ronaldo', he replied:
"This is a joke that shouldn't bother either of us. Because when they tell me I am very proud and I'm sure he is too. Let's say that we are both the real Ronaldo!"
