Lionel Messi Has A Higher Rating Than Cristiano Ronaldo In FIFA 20
Lionel Messi has pulled ahead of fierce rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the Ultimate Team ratings for FIFA 20.
Both five-time Ballon d'Or winners received the same FIFA rating for the first time in last year's FIFA 19.
But Barcelona captain Messi has managed to keep hold of his 94 rating in the upcoming title, according to online leaks.
The same can't be said for Juventus superstar Ronaldo, who has dropped from his 94 rating in FIFA 19 to a 93 in FIFA 20.
The 34-year-old Portuguese forward has had a famous rivalry with Messi and even took a dig at him over his Champions League success last month.
Both Messi and Ronaldo attended the Champions League draw last week and were beaten to the UEFA Men's Player of the Year award by Virgil van Dijk.
But former Manchester United and Real Madrid star Ronaldo was humble during an interview and even extended a dinner invite to the Argentine superstar.
Messi, unsurprisingly, is the highest-rated player in the Barcelona squad in FIFA 20, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen the second highest at a 90 rating.
Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann and Sergio Busquets all have an 89 rating, while Gerard Pique has been upgraded to 88.
Barcelona's arch-rivals, Real Madrid, have also had their Ultimate Team ratings released online.
And marquee summer signing Eden Hazard is the highest-rated player for Los Blancos with a whopping 91 rating.
