Messi and Ronaldo FIFA 23 Ratings


Sophie Lyons, Author

After a long wait, soccer superstars Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo’s FIFA ratings came out in September of 2022. FIFA ratings are points out of 100 on specific attributes of players.  These attributes include pace (what pace can they maintain for 90 minutes), passing accuracy, defense, finishing, dribbling, and physical. The score is based on the average of all ratings. Ronaldo and Messi are always being compared through their FIFA scores and the player on top changes every year!

For the FIFA 23 ratings, Messi received:

  • Pace = 81
  • Finishing accuracy = 89
  • Passing accuracy = 90
  • Dribbling = 94
  • Defense = 34
  • Physical = 64

This brings Messi to a FIFA score of 91

As for Ronaldo, he has received:

  • Pace =  81
  • Finishing accuracy = 92
  • Passing accuracy = 78
  • Dribbling = 85
  • Defense = 34
  • Physical = 75

This brings Ronaldo to a FIFA score of 90

Messi and Ronaldo have very similar scores, both ranging in different aspects of the game. It is important to note that they both went down from their ratings of last year. Messi by 2 points and Ronaldo by 1. Messi has taken the number 1 spot but he is now tied with Barcelona player, Robert Lewandowski,  Kevein Debruyne from Manchester City, and teammate Kylian Mbappe from PSG. Who knows what next year’s stats will bring?
