The Barcelona talisman boasts of being El Clasico's all-time top scorer. The Argentine ace has hit the net 26 times in 38 fixtures against Real Madrid.

Out of the 26 goals, 18 of Messi's goals came in the LaLiga, two in the Champions League and six in the Supercopa. The Argentine, thus, has scored 0.68 goals per game.

On the other hand, Ronaldo has scored 18 Real Madrid goals against Barcelona in 30 fixtures, only eight goals behind Messi. This means Ronaldo has an impressive goals per game tally of 0.6, though still lesser than Lionel Messi.

Messi once again dominates in El Clasico's assist department as the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has 14 assists to his name in 38 El Clasico games. In the span of these games, the Argentine also created 68 chances.
