Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho claimed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were “from another planet” after their Clasico exploits on Sunday evening – and few who watched the action at Camp Nou would disagree.
The showpiece Liga clash was billed as the Ballon d’Or decider, the match which could determine once and for all which of the world’s two leading lights should be considered the greatest of the modern game. However, after two sublime goals apiece and a share of the spoils for either side, the debate has only been further fuelled.
The Argentina and Portugal stars shone the brightest on a field of stellar talent as each side fought back from a goal down to draw a thrilling contest 2-2 and leave the title race (just about) still open.
