Lionel Messi has singled out Cristiano Ronaldo for praise following the Juventus star's sensational goal scoring streak.
Ronaldo appeared to have experienced a slump in the opening weeks of the ongoing campaign, before rediscovering his scoring feet in the second half of the season.
The Portuguese ace has found the back of the net in 10 consecutive Serie A matches this season, to take his overall tally to 20 goals.
He is currently second in the league's scoring list behind Lazio's Ciro Immobile who has 26 goals.
But Messi, his supposed football rival is not surprised by the 35-year-old's staggering stats, conceding the Portugal international has made goalscoring his obsession.
"It's normal that he continues to score, he is a predatory striker, he loves to score, any day he plays he will score," Messi told Mundo Deportivo.
"He has many good attributes as a forward and at the minimum he converts," he added.
Meanwhile, Messi has not scored in his last four league matches but has managed to set up six goals for his Barcelona side.
The six-time Ballon d'Or winner is currently boasting of 14 goals across 19 La Liga appearances for Barcelona this season.
