Ronaldo gets more fan votes than Messi as both players make UEFA Team of the Year 2018
- Only two Barca players are included in the brand new ultimate line-up: Messi and Ter Stegen.
- The Argentine receives 107326 votes while his eternal rival Ronaldo earns a bit more: 108423.
- With 4 players included in the current Best XI, Madrid have now overtaken Barca for most appearances in the UEFA Team of the Year.
UEFA reveal their very own Team of the Year as voted by fans. Unfortunately, only TWO Barcelona players have made the cut: naturally, Lionel Messi and the goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The whole UEFA Team of the Year looks as follows: Ter Stegen; Ramos, Van Dijk, Varane, Marcelo; Modric, Kante, Hazard; Mbappe, Messi, Ronaldo.
How did the fans vote? 51307 users voted for Ter Stegen as he selected in the 30.4% of the total fan-made best XI. Lionel Messi, meanwhile, receives total 107326 votes as he included in the 63.7% of all teams.
However, the Argentine's result is slightly worse than one of his greatest rival, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese earned 108423 votes and is picked up for the 64.3% of total ultimate line-ups.
The brand new UEFA Team of the Year means a heavy blow for Barcelona as their fiercest rivals Real Madrid have now overtaken the Catalans for most player appearances in the UEFA Best XI. In total, the Blaugrana have delegated 47 players, one fewer than Los Blancos. Fair enough?
Do you agree with the takes?
