Statistical comparison: Messi vs Ronaldo

It’s been doing the rounds almost every-time they score and it’s not going to end with the stats I am going to state below. One may be better by way of stats but that may not say he is better than the other one. All I want everyone to know is that these are the stats and will never say which one is better.

GS-games started,   GO-goals,  AS-assist,  YC-yellow cards,  RC- red cards,   FC- fouls committed, FS- fouls suffered

(Messi started his professional football career in 05-06 season)
