Jordi Alba: Lionel Messi better than Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo has become the first sportsperson to his 100 million followers on the social media platform, leaving the likes of rival Lionel Messi, who has 70.8m followers, in his wake.

One of the players expected to skip the game against Granada is Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been rested in several matches recently and has thrived in the final stretch of the season.

Manchester Evening News claim that should Real Madrid ever indicate that they would be prepared to sell the 32-year-old, United would be willing to pay "whatever it takes" to re-sign their former star.

Diego Simeone's much-hyped defense faltered when it was needed the most, likely costing Atletico Madrid a chance of returning to the Champions League final.

It was thanks to tough defending that Atletico thrived in recent years, winning the Spanish league in 2014 and reaching the Champions League final in two of the last three seasons.

Writing in his column on BBC Sport, Neville said: "Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi push each other on".

"It's something special", Ronaldo said.

The France global is on Zinedine Zidane's radar after a stunning campaign that has seen him score 24 goals in 39 games. "The team was phenomenal and to score three goals made it a special night", he added.

With my above postulations and overwhelming evidences, I have just one question for you: Are you still one of his enemies?

The Real Madrid star contributed nearly half of my 68 points for matchday 11, with Dani Alves (12 points) also in double figures. It had been an up-and-down season for Ronaldo, who has 35 goals so far.

The hat trick on Tuesday was his seventh in the Champions League, leaving him with 103 goals in the competition.
