SPORTbible has decided to use Futhead to do a side-by-side comparison of Maradona and Messi's in-game stats on FIFA 20.

As part of this experiment, Messi's 94-rated base card in FIFA Ultimate Team will go up against Maradona's 95-rated icon card.

Each player is awarded one point if they win that stat category, while a tie awards each footballer a 0.5 score.
