The Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo debate has likely reached its end, especially after the Argentine won the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the Portuguese star has left European football for Saudi Arabia.
As a result, many are moving to the Erling Haaland-Kylian Mbappe debate. However, after the 24-year-old reached a second straight World Cup final while also scoring a hat-trick against Argentina.
Nonetheless, as club football picks up steam, the debate is once again circling the football. Entering Tuesday, Haaland (34) and Mbappe (31) have over 30-plus goal involvements across all competitions.

Haaland had a hat-trick in Manchester City’s 3-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers as the Norway international carried the team offensively to three points.
Meanwhile, Mbappe is coming off a five-goal performance, the most ever by a PSG player during a game, in the 7-0 Coupe de France Round of 32 victory over Pays de Cassels.
The France international is three goal involvements away and he’ll look to do so when PSG welcomes Stade de Reims on Sunday to the Parc des Princes. As for Haaland, he’ll face Arsenal on Friday at the Etihad Stadium in the FA Cup Round Four.
