Ronaldo ended his one-month goal drought against Schalke last week, and scored another against Elche on Sunday.

Messi, meanwhile, failed to score in Saturday's 1-0 defeat against Malaga as well as Tuesday’s 2-1 Champions League win at Manchester City.

The 27-year-old missed a last-minute penalty against the Premier League champions, which means he has scored one goal less than Ronaldo this season.

Ronaldo has scored 38 goals in 35 appearances for Real Madrid, while Messi hit the back of the net 37 times in as many games for Barcelona.

The Portuguese also extended his lead on the La Liga goal charts to three goals, with 29 to Messi's 26.

Messi has scored more in Champions League (eight to seven) and Copa del Rey (three to one), but Ronaldo can also add his two goals from the European Super Cup final which happened at the beginning of the campaign.

Both superstars have three La Liga games and their respective Champions League return leg – and Messi a Copa del Rey semi-final – before they face each other in the next El Clasico, on 22 March.
