In Argentina will follow always opened the debate on which has been the best Argentinian footballer of the history, if Leo Messi or Diego Armando Maradona. However, throwing a glimpse to the numbers one darse that, in the chapter of goals, the '10' does not have rival and ridicules to the 'Lint' until the point to duplicate his targets.

68 goals has marked Leo Messi with the absolute of Argentina after the penalti annotated in the last party of Glass America 2019 in front of Paraguay (1-1), whereas Diego Armando Maradona so only was able to mark the half (34), and one of them with the hand. Messi, simultaneously, has needed 132 parties to arrive to this figure of targets with Argentina, whereas Maradona needed 69 meetings.

The average realizador is similar, since the one of Leo Messi is of 0,51 targets by party, by the 0,49 of Maradona. Regarding marked goals between clubs and selection, Leo has 671 targets, 603 with the FC Barcelona and 68 with Argentina, whereas Maradona added 345 in the total of all his career futbolística.

That is to say, that the '10' of the FC Barcelona is to so only 19 so many to bend literally to the 'Lint' in general goals, all a gesta that for many has happened unobserved, and that it would be necessary to take into account like argument in the eternal debate between Messi and Maradona. 

Messi, on the other hand, no only bends to the 'Lint' in goals with Argentina but it takes out 14 so many to the classified second, Gabriel Batistuta, and 29 to the third, his mate and fellow Sergio 'Kun' Agüero. The only argument against of Leo Messi, and the main for his detractores, is that his 132 parties with the albiceleste have not served him still to conquer any title.

The titles, the big argument against of Messi

Yes it won the medal of gold of the JJOO of Peking (2008) with the combined Sub-23, and the World-wide of Holland (2005) with the Sub-20. However, Maradona drove to the best Argentinian of the history -to level of team- to win the World-wide of Mexico of 1986. In the rest of comparisons wins clearly Leo Messi, without possibility of reply. But it hurts the fact that, in spite of having arrived to three finals with the absolute of Argentina -two of Glass America and one of the World-wide 2014-, the best player of the world still walk of empty with his selection.
