Two players widely regarded as among the greatest to play the game are currently displaying their magical abilities on the European stage – and they are both in the same league.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the larger than life character who leads the line at Real Madrid.
Meanwhile at their biggest rivals, Barcelona, the Argentine wizard Lionel Messi continues to dazzle millions of fans with his mesmerising skills.
Their goalscoring alone has simply rewritten the record books. And when these two players’ clubs go head to head then the thought of a trip to watch the biggest fixture in club football, El Clásico, becomes even more mouth-watering.

The wonderful thing is that Messi and Ronaldo are just part of the magic of La Liga. Real Madrid’s galaxy of stars have won more than a dozen European Cups, while Barcelona – a team including Messi, Suarez and Dembélé - won La Liga in 2018 with four games to spare.
Both club’s stadiums are simply jaw-dropping. Real’s Santiago Bernabéu holds 81,000 and its multiple tiers surge into the sky. Meanwhile Barcelona’s vast and legendary Camp Nou is the biggest football stadium in Europe with a capacity of 99,000.
