Ronaldo, Messi each score two more

RonaldoGetty MessiGetty

Something special is going on in Spain involving two of the world's finest soccer players.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi maintained their impeccable ways on Saturday, with each netting braces in wins for Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively.

Ronaldo, who scored the game-winning and insurance goals in the final 10 minutes of Real Madrid's 3-1 victory over Hercules, now has 12 goals in league play, including an incredible eight in his last three matches.

Not to be outdone, Messi tallied twice in Barcelona's 5-0 victory over Sevilla and has seven goals in La Liga games. He has scored two in each of Barcelona's last three games, which includes a UEFA Champions League match.

Highlights of all four goals are after the jump:






Whose performance impressed you more? Who do you see ending up with more goals? If you had to pick one of the two to have on your team, who would you chose?

    wow. beautiful goals

  2. Jake says:

    The announcer in the second goal sounds reallly excited. I don’t know what he was saying but it sounded good.

  3. Jake says:

    The second Messi goal, I mean.

  4. BCC says:

    I am more impressed by Ronaldo because he is playing in a new system for a new manager. Before the season started, some “pundits” were saying that he would have to play a supporting role under Mourinho.

    Messi is Messi. He knows the system, knows the team, knows the league . . . if he stays healthy, he’ll always be in the running for the Pichichi.

  5. Ryan says:

    why does it seem like more than half of ronaldos goals are tap ins?

  6. Smacking says:

    Probably because he does an incredible job of pulling defenders away then cutting into space

    the second Messi goal was nice, the other goals were just sitters.

  9. LittleMaradona says:

    Si, si, buenoth diath, welcome to barthlona.

  10. norma says:

    I agree he is always there to tap in only

  11. Spectra says:

    I know when free kicks come up for Real I never get excited or anything.

  12. Jake says:

    Just realized it’s the same announcer for both Messi goals. Hahaha, I guess I was paying attention.

  13. jig says:

    not good enough for you?

  14. 30 Yard Blast says:

    Do you supppose tap ins should only count half as much?

    Why not institute a rule that says if the goal comes from within the six yard box it only counts as half a goal?

  15. bryan says:

    solid goals.

  16. bronaldo says:

    Impressive but not unexpected. La Liga teams don’t play defense.

  17. BCC says:

    I have no idea what league you watch. Why don’t you begin by looking at Real Madrid’s goals allowed statistics.

    The ignorance is hard to take sometimes.

  18. jig says:

    ahhahaha what a silly, silly generalization.

  19. jig says:

    agreed. Statements like this on here make me want to gauge my eyes out.

  20. Buck says:

    Where is Chicharito?

  21. Eric says:

    Did you see the first Real goal? Di Maria had a tap in of a blast from Ronaldo.

  22. jamesey says:

    Messi – 41 goals in his last 42 La Liga matches.

    CRonaldo – 38 goals in his last 38 La Liga matches.

    They’re both on fire.
