  • Pep Guardiola Lionel Messi

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has always been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo, with the two being in their peak whilst representing the Blaugrana and Real Madrid respectively, but the Argentine has intimated that he misses Cristiano's presence in LaLiga Santander.

The comparisons between the pair, arguably the best players of their generation, particularly intense when both were in La Liga, as Cristiano Ronaldo, 34, played for Real Madrid - Barcelona's greatest rivals.

The Barcelona superstar went head-to-head with Ronaldo for nearly a decade in LaLiga, where the two scored at an astonishing rate and practically assumed shared custody of the Ballon d'Or.

Who do you think is the better player, between Messi and Ronaldo?

Messi won his sixth Ballon d'Or in 2019 to go one ahead of Ronaldo, who has claimed the prestigious honour on five occasions.

Argentine football celebrity Lionel Messi has admitted that his personal battle with nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo was "special" and "fun" during their rivalry in Spain's La Liga.

ValuEngine raised shares of UnitedHealth Group from a sell rating to a hold rating in a research report on Wednesday, October 2nd. The business had revenue of $275.40 million during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $281.03 million.

And Messi has praised Ronaldo, telling DAZN: "It was a special duel and it will remain [in people's minds] forever, because it lasted for many years and it is not easy to maintain such levels for a long time".

"More so at the two teams that we were at; Madrid and Barcelona, the two best [teams] in the world".

"Competing on an equal footing for so many years, I think it will remain forever".

The last Clasico clash ended 0-0 at Camp Nou in December, with Barca set to head to the Santiago Bernabeu in March.

Barca this week appointed a new head coach, with Quique Setien replacing Ernesto Valverde, despite the club sitting joint-top of the table with Madrid.
