What stands out in the video is that Messi and Ronaldo's playing styles would perfectly compliment one another.
Juventus forward Ronaldo is known for his unrivaled physicality and mentality, which has helped him become one of the world's greatest players.
Meanwhile, Messi's talents seem naturally gifted to him and his technical ability has helped him dominate football with Barcelona for the last decade and a half.
Both men can operate as a striker or out wide, meaning they could find each other darting into the box with a fantastic pass.
Ronaldo would likely rack up boatloads of goals while Messi's assist counter would skyrocket to crazy heights.
Fans have reacted to the compilation and it's got everyone dreaming of a future link-up.
This is the best Video Comps I've ever seen. This is gold. Thank you.

Said it before that they compliment each other soo much, it's almost like they were born to play with each other. The level of intelligence if they played together would be unmatched, Ronaldo's Mentality & Messi's Ability would kill teams before games...

Messi has spoken about playing with Ronaldo in the past and he joked that he would pass to the 35-year-old - eventually.
"I guess so, in the end, yes," he told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.
While Portugal captain Ronaldo has praised the rivalry they have shared and said he would love to have dinner with the 32-year-old one day.
"We have shared the stage 15 years. I don't know if that's happened before - the same two guys on the same stage all the time," the Juventus forward said in August.
"Of course, we have a good relationship. We haven't had dinner together yet, but I hope in the future.
"We had that battle in Spain. I pushed him and he pushed me as well. So it's good to be part of the history of football."
Do you think Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will ever play in the same team?
