Messi 12, Ronaldo 1

While Lionel Messi has started the new La Liga campaign on fire, Cristiano Ronaldo is experiencing one of his worst starts to a season.
The FC Barcelona superstar has already scored 12 goals in just 10 league games so far, adding his latest strike in his side's 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.
This is the best start Messi has had to a La Liga campaign in the past five seasons, when he scored seven, three, seven and eight strikes in the first 10 games, respectively.
The last time the Argentine did better out of the starting blocks was in 2012/13, when he had 13 goals at this stage in the campaign. In fact, the 2012/13 season was the only campaign when Messi had more goals after the first 10 league games.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, has been firing blanks left, right and centre in his first 10 league games of the season. The Portuguese has only netted once so far, in a 2-1 win over Getafe on 14 October.
However, the 32-year-old missed the first four league games this season after picking up a suspension in the Spanish Super Cup.
It's not that Ronaldo does not get goalscoring opportunities... his conversion rate has been very poor so far this season – he has converted just one of his 40 shots so far.
Ronaldo is not the only star man struggling in 2017/18, though. Luis Suarez has scored only three La Liga goals so far, while Antoine Griezmann has only netted twice in Spain's top flight.
