"I am living my dream at Barcelona".

What do you think about Messi and Ronaldo?

"It's normal that we went through the motions, but we don't want that to be the standard pattern when we're only 2-0 up or not in the lead by a clear margin", he said after the game. "I am very happy with the performance".

"It's not jealousy - I feel good, for instance, when he nutmegs someone".

FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi, right, reacts after scoring against Granada with his teammate Neyma ...

Unless there are any surprises to come, Leo Messi will take home his fifth Ballon d'Or after finishing last season on scintillating form, even though he was hindered by a knee injury early on this season which sidelined him for nearly two months. Maybe it's worse for the player because he'll have to play less, but for the coach it's better because I have more solutions.

Midfielders: Andres Iniesta (Barcelona and Spain), Paul Pogba (Juventus and France), James Rodriguez (Real Madrid and Colombia).

The last player to make the XI on the back of a full year in the Premier League was Gareth Bale in 2011.

It's all about Messi and Ronaldo, Barcelona and Real Madrid. "We believed and did an excellent job", Arda said.

How did Twitter react to Ronaldo and Messi's latest displays?

"It is much better to play against Atletico at home rather than at Vicente Calderon", he said.

"The fans were behind the team from the first minute until the end".

Arda made his debut for the Turkish national team in August 2006.

"The key will be to get to the matches in a couple of months feeling fresh and that's why I have to ration (playing time)". Sampaoli is a great choice after leading Chile to its first Copa America title ever in the summer, but Enrique is the sure victor. But since 2010-11 season he have scored more than 50 goals in each season and all comes consecutively.

It is the first time that Neymar has been nominated for the prize, with the Brazilian impressing en route to helping the Catalan club win the treble.

It was a messy game in Barcelona's 4-1 win over Espanyol in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey Round of 16 matchup.

"My plan is to share out the minutes, because all my players are important".

That changed in 2015 when Messi inspired Barcelona to regain the Champions League title among five major trophies to none for Real Madrid, despite Ronaldo's relentless goal-scoring pace.

Oliver Kahn: "It'll probably be another battle between Messi, who's had a strong season, and Ronaldo, who has scored another hatful of goals".
