Barcelona v Real Madrid

Superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will battle on the pitch at this weekend's El Clasico at the Nou Camp, with Barcelona eight points clear of their rivals after just six games.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi is a three-time Ballon d'Or winner, and could win an unprecedented fourth this year. 

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo aided his club to the league title last season.

"I can not decide between Messi and Ronaldo, both are very good and we are lucky to have them here with us," said Del Bosque.

Messi and Ronaldo clashed for the Pichichi last season - each have six goals this year, but trail Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao who has seven.

"We have always been cautious ahead of the Clasicos," said the Spain coach. "Madrid and Barcelona have experienced moments that were not pleasant.

"I hope the players put in good performances which will help to avoid problems."

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Real Madrid defeated Ajax 4-1 during this week's Champions League tie.

Barcelona also took three points as they defeated Benfica in their own backyard 2-0.
