Lionel Messi : Barcelona News

 Yahoo Sport  Today
“Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two most dangerous attacking players in the world, and their rivalry is one of the most compelling parts of El Clasico – Real Madrid v FC Barcelona.”

 The Independent  Today
“Accustomed to thriving against his fierce rival, Lionel Messi will again lead Barcelona at Real Madrid as he aims for another scoring record. The big question is whether Luis Suarez will join him or watch from the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium bench.”
