Madrid [Spain], Sept.3 (ANI): Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is slightly more talented than Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi, according to the latest EA Sports FIFA ratings for this year's FIFA 17 game.

Ronaldo is rated 94--one point above his arch rival Messi, who had higher passing and dribbling statistics than his Portuguese counterpart.

The Real Madrid No.7, on the other hand, surpassed the Argentine in pace, shooting, defending and physical strength, the Marca reported.

Ronaldo has enjoyed a superb season so far, winning both Champions League and the European Championships, and was awarded UEFA Best Player in Europe trophy last month.

He is also being considered as the favourite to lift his fourth Ballon d'Or ahead of Messi.

Meanwhile, Neymar, Luis Suarez and Manuel Neuer are next on the list just behind the Ballon d'Or winners with a 92 overall score. (ANI)
