Messi/Ronaldo: The Style of No Style

Yes, Messi and Ronaldo score like Colin Farrell — but while they dominate, they don’t transcend, they aren’t memorable. And that’s our fault — they reflect our recent taste for soccer as Castrol Index, with the supreme value not magic but data. “We watch and wait for the goal, only mildly surprised by the steps along the way…There’s a great chance that Messi or Ronaldo, or both, will make the difference. But how do they make that difference?” (Futfanatico)
