The Argentine remains atop the rankings ahead of the Portugal superstar, despite a barren campaign at Barcelona across the 2019-20 season.
Lionel Messi has beaten Cristano Ronaldo to the title of the best player in the world once again – at least on the video game front, after EA Sports published their list of the top 100 players available in FIFA 21.
The Argentine has retained his spot atop the pile ahead of the Portugal superstar, despite enduring a barren season for club and country for the first time in years after Barcelona failed to secure any honours across the 2019-20 campaign.
Both players however have seen a drop in their overall rating, with the pair slipping a single point from 94 and 93 respectively to 93 and 92, though they have retained their positions in first and second overall. Goal.com
