The Argentina international has nothing but praise for his compatriot and the Portugal star, and refuses to label one of them as the better footballer
Higuain plays alongside Ronaldo at club level, while teaming up with the Barcelona star for Argentina's national side, and he has nothing but praise for the two forwards.
"Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are both beasts. I can't choose between them," Higuain stated to Radio Metro.
"I'm lucky enough to play with both Messi and Cristiano and I don't like comparing them.
"Both players do great things and deserve to be considered among the best in the world."
Both Messi and Ronaldo netted twice in Sunday's Clasico as Barcelona and Madrid played out an entertaining draw at Camp Nou.
