The season 2019-20 finish to begin, but Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo follow stepping strong between the greater stars of the planet. The Portuguese continues giving that speak with the Juventus in the Series To, and the Argentinian went back to annotate with the FC Barcelona after several months lesionado and some weeks tuning, a period of drought after which pretends to give war. Both have been news by an interview in Italy.

Gianluigi Buffon has made a curious comparison on the two footballers that have dominated the last decade, in which they have delivered the majority of individual trophies, have fattened his statistics and have harvested so many collective titles that by performance, contribution and character have won a place between the best players of all the history of this sport.

Federer is of infinite class, whereas Nadal is perseverance, sweat and also talent, of the contrary can not win all the Grand Slams that attained", justified the cancerbero returned to Turín. Of this form, has compared the magic of Roger and Messi and the power and delivery of Rafa and Cristiano, some shots that have turned into his signals of identity.

Between 2001 and 2018 it defended the goal 'bianconeri' before leaving a season to the PSG, after which returned to the Series To to reinforce again to the 'vecchia signora'. So much in domestic competitions as in the Champions, is an authentic expert.

Messi will follow with his tuned in the Barça

That Messi stand out by his class does not mean that it do not work in his preparation in which it will invest notably in this stop of selections. The one of Rosario still is not available for the friendly commitments of Argentina because it is sanctioned, by what will take some days of deserved rest before reinforcing his physicist and follow taking rhythm after long stopped. The '10' has proposed lead to the Barça in the fight by the titles and wants to reach his best level what before.
