Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has tried to put an end to the talk about being superior over Cristiano Ronaldo and vice versa.
The duo have been the best players on the planet for the last five years. It is not surprising that they have had the FIFA Ballon d’Or award between each other for the last eight seasons. There could be more along the way. Even though Messi slightly edges Ronaldo in this aspect, he has been significantly better than the former Manchester United star in terms of the overall trophies.

Rafa Benitez refused to get carried away with all the talk about Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the weekend’s match against Villarreal.
The team has enjoyed a five match winning run in all competitions and it has put behind memories of the thrashing from Barcelona in the last El Clasico. However, it has done little to close down the gap in the league table. Madrid continue to trail Barcelona by four points with the season about to go into a winter break. It is imperative that the club at least maintain this difference and not drop any more points.

Iker Casillas has once again refused to speak about the incidents that led to his downfall at Real Madrid in the last few years.

Casillas was once rated as one of the top goalkeepers in the world, but his form significantly deteriorated when he was dropped by Jose Mourinho. Several reasons have been put forth for this incident, but Casillas says that he will keep his silence since the Portuguese manager has also done the same.
