THINGS MIGHT GET MESSI: The Barcelona star takes on Cristiano Ronaldo in an old-school rap battle

All eyes will be on the two best players in the world on Sunday when Cristiano Roanldo and Lionel Messi go head to head in the third El Clasico of the season.

Both men have an army of supporters and over the last few seasons have continued to raise the bar and exceed all expectations on a football pitch.

Youtube sensation KSI has decided the only way to determine who is the world’s best is with an old school rap battle. One on one, man v man, this is the ultimate test of vocabulary and skill.

The rapping skills of both players probably won’t win them a Ballon D’or but the stats are certainly there to back up the claims that they are the two best players in the world.

Messi has 175 goals in 220 league games for Barcelona and won the Ballon D’or three years on the spin between 2009 and 2011.

Ronaldo has scored 158 goals in 154 games in all competitions for Real Madrid and has already got two hat-tricks to his name this season.

The game could be won or lost by these two goalscoring machines and they both love the big stage. Messi has a 71% strike success rate against Madrid and Ronaldo has scored in each of the last five El Clasicos.

Messi is 7/2 to open the scoring and 8/11 to find the back of the net at any time. Real Madrid have taken the lead in five of the last six El Clasicos and Ronaldo is 9/2 to hit the onion bag first and evens to score at any time in the game.
