Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo warmed up for their teams’ upcoming Copa del Rey clash with high-scoring displays on Sunday to help Barcelona and Real Madrid cruise to comfortable wins against helpless Spanish league opponents. After Ronaldo hit his 20th career hat trick in an 11-minute span to help Madrid rout Getafe 4-0, an insatiable Messi did him one better by netting four times in Barcelona’s 5-1 thrashing of 10-man Osasuna. Messi is on pace to break his own Spanish league record of 50 goals from last season. The forward leads the league with 33 goals in 21 rounds, chased by Ronaldo on 21.
The two best players in the world? Perhaps. Messi is next level, and as much as I hate Ronaldo the guy is brilliant on the pitch. Hit the jump to see some heavy action in La Liga from Messi and Ronaldo…
