There’s no doubt who the two best players in the world are and let’s be honest, unless you’re a Man United or Real Madrid fan, it’s pretty clear who the one best player is. Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi scored the winning goals for Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively on Sunday. Messi (43 goals) curled/floated a cracking free-kick in to the top corner to beat Atletico Madrid and and Ronaldo (37 goals) scored a spectacular back-heel to give Real the win over Rayo Vallecano.
Both goals are great on their own merits but is it the measured, elegant brilliance of Messi or the arrogant, couldn’t even be arsed to look at the goal, a little bit jammy Ronaldo? I clearly have my favourite.
