All eyes were on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo again in El Clasico and once more it was the Barcelona star who came out on top, scoring in a 3-0 win.
Messi also managed to catch Ronaldo full in the face with a free kick at the end of the first half.

It summed up a miserable afternoon for Ronaldo who saw a header correctly ruled out for offside as his side slipped 14 points behind Barcelona.
Messi, meanwhile, ensured it will be a Merry Christmas for Barcelona.
