And this is why you are biased and debating with you is futile on this subject.Everything? Messi has exemplarily destroyed Atletico and Real multiple times in recent seasons. And I mean "destroyed" as in "he tore them apart with his dribbles, passes and goals" not as in "he scored two goals and was invisible apart from that". He also destroyed Liverpool and Chelsea in the CL and probably some more top sides in matches I don't remember since I don't keep record. Oh, and he "Cristiano-destroyed" United when he scored twice against you lot but wasn't that special overall.
By the way, the match Messi had against Liverpool this year was more impressive than anything I saw from Cristiano in his last three CL wins. And I haven't seen Cristiano having a game as good as Messi's second leg against them without scoring in years.
If you had to pick one player to play for you in a pressure situation Messi would be low on the list.
