Joshua Kimmich Compares Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

Bayern Munich is all ready to host Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday, and will try to seek revenge for last season’s quarter-final elimination.

Football News: ‘Goal machine’ Ronaldo is more complete than Messi, says Kimmich

Bayern will have to pay a closer attention to Cristiano Ronaldo as his hat-trick in the second leg in the quarter-final of the previous Champions League had knocked out the German side.

The Portugal star is currently in a remarkable form, having scored 15 times in 10 Champions League games this season and would love to continue his golden form.

Bayern Munich’s right back, Joshua Kimmich, is all prepared to go up against the world’s most “complete” player in Cristiano Ronaldo, when his team faces the current Champions League holders.

The 23-year-old German football believes that Cristiano Ronaldo’s “insane” goal-scoring exploits makes him more of an all-round threat than his Barcelona rival Lionel Messi.

"When it comes to goal quotas, Ronaldo is in the lead," Kimmich told Bild. "Especially with regards to the goals in the Champions League.

"Messi is a completely different type of player. Ronaldo is perhaps more complete in terms of skills themselves.

"Messi is more a dribbler, Ronaldo the final player. I cannot say this one or that one. I am glad that I am allowed to witness both.

"Such a player as Ronaldo, you can only turn off as a whole team anyway. He is a goal machine, which has an insane goal quota. We have to make sure that he cannot continue his run," said Kimmich.
