Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo

j888Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi look to keep up their rivalry as both are showing impressive form. Certainly, fans across the world cannot wait for when Barcelona play Real Madrid later this month.

Ronaldo has not been without his critics this season but scored two incredible goals earlier this year.

His main rival, Lionel Messi has had a great start to 2015. The amazing footballer continues to score fantastic goals, although it was a real shock when he missed a penalty recently in the Champions League second leg with Manchester City.

On the season, Messi is catching up with 31 goals and 14 assists in 28 matches, while Ronaldo has 36 goals and 13 assists in 31 matches. And that could turn rather quickly as Ronaldo is currently under a three match suspension for kicking an opponent in the game against Cordoba.

All eyes are on Sunday week’s Real Madrid vs Barcelona game, when these two magnificent players face each other in the white-hot atmosphere of the Camp Nou stadium.

    Good article. Messi, for me, is by far the best player in the world. Others may disagree but I’m a Barca fan so………….
