There’s no easy answer to the question of who is the greatest, but this most recent round of Champions League games may have given us an indication of who is on top right now – and who will be most fondly remembered in years to come.

While Messi failed to deliver in the clutch moment of a major game once again, Ronaldo’s (controversial) hat trick gave Los Blancos safe passage to yet another semifinal.
