Robert Lewandowski Is More Clinical Than Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi

Robert Lewandowski Is More Clinical Than Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi

Robert Lewandowski is statistically the best striker in world football right now and is more clinical than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Reddit user u/kazcmot has worked out that Lewandowski is currently scoring a goal every 94 minutes of action based on stats between 2017-2019.

This is in comparison to Messi and Ronaldo who stand at 95 and 100 minutes respectively.

Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero also feature on the chart and it makes for interesting reading.

In terms of league goals, Barca captain Messi tops the list with a goal every 78 minutes in La Liga.

The 32-year-old is a human highlight reel with his goals so it's hard to believe he can keep up the consistency in front of goal.

Ronaldo is interestingly fourth in this category coming behind Lewandowski and Aguero.

The 34-year-old scored 21 goals in Serie A, five behind Capocannoniere winner Fabio Quagliarella.

But when it comes to the Champions League, very few can match up to the Portugal captain.

It's often referred to as his specialist tournament and it's not hard to see why.

He won the tournament in 2017 and 2018, clocking in with a goal every 92 minutes.

Aguero is just behind with a goal every 95 minutes as City regularly romp through the group stages with huge scorelines.

City boss Pep Guardiola was reportedly ready to phase Aguero out of the City side in favour of Gabriel Jesus.

But the sheer number of goals from Aguero has made it hard for him to be left out.

It makes for grim reading for Barca frontman Suarez who scores a Champions League goal every 512 minutes and registers 0.185 goals per game.

He's only scored four goals in the last three seasons in Europe's elite competition.

The former Liverpool man is also very low in the rankings behind the other four in all other categories.

Many Barcelona fans have believed his ability at the top level has been waning for some time and perhaps he can no longer be considered in the elite category.

Lewandowski is a striker who seems to get better with age however.

The 31-year-old has scored a staggering 23 goals in 18 games this season and is the first player in the Bundesliga's history to score in 11 consecutive games.

Poland's captain scored two goals against Borussia Dortmund at the weekend and he also showed he was more than just a clinical goalscorer.

Who do you think is the best striker in the world?
