Greatest individual rivalries in sport

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

Messi and Ronaldo. It’s rare to hear one name without the other, as their rivalry is one that just goes on and on. Argentinian forward Messi got the upper hand most recently, beating the Portuguese to Raul’s Champions League goal record with a hat-trick on Tuesday that moved him on to 74. However, expect Ronaldo to come back with a feat of his own sometime soon, and the pattern to continue for the rest of their careers – much like some of sport’s other great individual rivalries.
