A detailed Twitter thread has been created that attempts to end the Lionel Messi versus Cristiano Ronaldo debate once and for all.

It’s an argument that has dominated football conversations for many years.

As the two best players of the modern era, and having competed for the same trophies during that time, they’re the subject of a debate fans love to have about all players: which one was better?

Thankfully, Twitter account @FootyThreads_ have provided an in-depth analysis of the pair’s career stats to draw a conclusion.

And we must say, it’s pretty conclusive.

We’ve picked out some of the best tweets below.

So, @FootyThreads_ determine that Barcelona's Messi is the better player, and they don’t really think it’s close.

One remarkable stat they point out is that Messi could score zero goals in his next 8,000 minutes of football and he would still have a better goals per game ratio than Ronaldo.

They are very strong in their conclusion.

“I’ll stop here, all of this is plenty of proof, I’ve never understood why it’s been a debate,” they write.

“No logical person can possibly think CR7 is better, not after reading this or knowing all the facts.

“Messi is the greatest to ever play the game, and it’s an insult to compare him.”
