Penalties Statistics Between Messi VS Ronaldo

Legend Lionel Messi put himself in an embarrassing situation during the Argentina-Poland match, at the end of the Group C matches of the 2022 World Cup.

Where Messi missed a penalty kick that was saved by Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny, which almost complicated the chances of the "Tango" to qualify for the second round.

But the Argentine National Team got out of this critical situation and scored two goals in the second half, which ensured its qualification at the top of Group C, to face Australia, the runners-up of Group D.

Lionel Messi's missed penalty kick raised questions about the number of penalty kicks he missed in his career compared to his legendary rival Cristiano Ronaldo, captain of the Portugal national team.

By wasting this penalty kick, Leo has missed 31 penalty kicks throughout his football career, whether with the Argentina national team or Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

With Argentina, Messi missed 5 penalty kicks and missed one kick with the French champion against Real Madrid in the Champions League last season.

With Barcelona, Lionel missed the largest number of penalty kicks, as he missed 25 penalty kicks with the Catalan team.

On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo fell into the trap of wasting more penalty kicks than Lionel Messi, as the Portuguese star missed 29 penalty kicks.

Ronaldo's missed penalty kicks were distributed by 7 missed penalties with Portugal, 5 with Juventus, and 4 with Manchester United.

As for the largest percentage, it came in the Real Madrid shirt, as the Portuguese star missed 13 penalty kicks with the historic European champion.
