Ramos, meanwhile, has built a glittering career for both Real Madrid and Spain as he has established himself as one of the best defenders in football history.
The 34-year-old Spaniard has been no stranger to battling it out with Messi, especially in Barcelona and Madrid's heated matches.
However, one compilation has showcased the difficulty that Ramos has experienced against the six-time Ballon d'Or winner from 2005 to 2019.
One fan posted: "Sergio Ramos being humiliated in 13 minutes..."
While another wrote: "Clearly, we have two survivors here. Ramos is still, after 15 years, trying to catch Messi. While Messi is still alive after all this time!"
A third argued: "When Messi was in his prime... the only way to stop him was to foul him. Man was just insane. LOL."
Someone else said: "Ramos is so lucky that he had the opportunity to see Messi's amazing goals and assists from different angles while eating dirt."
And a fifth added: "I feel bad for Ramos. He went from being destroyed by Ronaldinho to being destroyed by Messi..."
Ramos has snubbed Messi as his toughest opponent in his illustrious career, saying that honour belongs to none other than Brazil legend Ronaldinho.
The Los Blancos skipper explained: "There've been many. Ronaldinho was virtually unstoppable at his best, as a forward or a playmaker."
Ramos endured a tough time against Ronaldinho as one fan's compilation highlighted how he made him 'look like an amateur' in one-on-one duels.
Messi also snubbed Ramos in his toughest opponent pick as he went for Spanish right-back Pablo Maffeo, who he branded as "intense" opposition.
The Barcelona captain said: "Man-marking doesn't bother me -- you know that there will be tough matches and it can be strange to always have someone around you.
"In truth, it hasn't happened to me that often. It doesn't bother me, but it is strange.
"Pablo Maffeo of Girona [was the toughest man-marker]. That was intense!
"I've never been one who complains. I think physical contact and kicks are part of the game.
"I get more annoyed when I play bad and I get a little more angry. But if I'm not [playing bad], it's not a problem, it's part of the game and I don't take it personally."
