Even if you are a football novice, most people have heard of the El Clasico football games as it involves two of the world’s best football teams and highest paid players. With so many people already gearing up to watch the El Clasico Livestream game that will be playing this December, we thought we’d give you a rundown of all why exactly this game is so popular and some of the best, and worst players that you will definitely get you excited to view the upcoming El Clasico Livestream.
The El Clasico livestream games are always one of the most anticipated games in the yearly football calendar, as it involves arguably two of the best football teams in the world, Real Madrid vs Barcelona, both of which are Spanish teams. The term El Clasico means “the classic,” and the El Clasico livestream games only ever feature Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Another reason why these games are so popular is because of the massive names involved with them. These two clubs have some of the most expensive players in the world playing for them which makes the El Clasico livestream game always worth a watch.
Messi Vs Ronaldo
There is always much debate between football fans over who is the best player when they watch the El Clasico Livestream games. Normally, the two famous football player faces that repeatedly crop up are Lionel Messi who plays for the Barcelona football team and Cristiano Ronaldo who plays for the Real Madrid football team. Both players are some of the highest paid in the world, but who comes out on top?
In terms of all-time career goals, Cristiano Ronaldo definitely is the winner by a good mile with 550 goals to Lionel Messi’s 517. However, while Ronaldo has individually had more all-time career goals, Lionel Messi’s team Barcelona have had more wins against Real Madrid in recent years. This will make for fantastic viewing of the upcoming El Clasico Livestream, as it really is up in the air of who the winner will be.
Both of these teams have played against each other 230 times, but Real Madrid has overall won more games against Barcelona with 92 wins to Barcelona’s 90. While Barcelona was on a winning streak in recent years with a massive 39 games won in a row, just in April of this year this winning streak was broken as Real Madrid took the crown, so there really is all to play for.
In 2016, Lionel Messi is actually the better scorer with 43 goals to his name against Cristiano Ronaldo’s 34 goals. However, there is still a few months left to go for 2016, and Ronaldo did beat out Messi in the last 3 years from 2013 to 2015.
As both of these players are regarded the best in the world, there is a well-known and documented football rivalry between the pair. Lionel Messi is an Argentine football player while Ronaldo is a Portuguese football player. This rivalry has transcended to the El Clasico livestream games as they both play for the rival football teams, which has a global audience of around 400 million viewers. What’s more they also both have sponsorship deals with rival sportswear brands as Ronaldo represents Nike, while Messi represents Adidas.
As two of the best players in the world, they are of course also paid a salary to represent this, and are the highest paid sports stars in the world. Ronaldo grabs the top spot with $88 million, while Messi is a close second with $81.4 million, and this includes off the field earnings. Furthermore, they both have an extremely large Facebook following with a combined 200 million Facebook fans, which is still growing every day.
While there is much debate over who is the best player in the world, the player’s personalities while they are away from the El Clasico livestream and the pitch also plays a role in their popularity. Ronaldo is known for being quite an arrogant player and a theatrical show off, while Messi is depicted in the media as more of a shy and humble person. These polar opposite personality types mean that views on the players are very different between fans, however, Messi’s character does seem to be more appealing to many.
Both of these players make for a fantastic El Clasico Livestream game, and it really wouldn’t be the same without them. While there are many arguments over who is the best player, there are no arguments over whether their on pitch faceoffs are one of the most entertaining games in the world of football.
