Champions League: Messi fears Ronaldo may win 6th Ballon d'Or

The Brazilian will be crucial again for Los Blancos in the Spanish capital, where Juve will be looking to gain a measure of pride after two resounding defeats to Zinedine Zidane's side in the space of 10 months - the first of which came in the 2017 Champions League final.

Spanish website, Don Balon reports that Messi now fears for the Ballon d'Or.

They will also remember Cristiano Ronaldo at this club.

His former Manchester United team-mate Owen Hargreaves told BT Sport it is these magical moments that prove Ronaldo is the ultimate player on the big stage. "We are playing for our season in this competition". But such was its devastating 3-0 destruction of Juventus in the first leg in Italy that no one doubts it will reach the semifinals where it will be the team everyone wants to avoid.

If Ronaldo wins the prize, it would be a stunning sixth Ballon d'Or for him.

That being said, let's have a look at 5 reasons why Barcelona fans hate Real Madrid.

Di Stefano dazzled at the club during the 1950s and 1960s when they won five European Cups and he scored more than 300 goals.

'We showed against PSG and Juventus, we showed that we are the same team as last season and we have returned to the level which helped us achieve our objectives then, ' Asensio said before explaining how his game has developed under Zidane. His last match was against Las Palmas following the worldwide break last month.

Juve defeated Benevento, 4-2, last Saturday on the road at Ciro Vigorito for their second straight win in the Serie A. It was a bounce-back win for head coach Massimiliano Allegri after the embarrassing loss to Real just four days before. Real Madrid will be serious and want to play a complete game, too.

The fact that the forward went off early in the derby is a measure of how the Champions League is now all-encompassing for Real.

"We still have the second game to play and we will have to give everything to get through".

"The whole world will be watching and we must play without thinking of regrets or what we could've done". "Nobody expected us to concede after two minutes in Turin, so why can't we do the same tomorrow (Wednesday)". "The game is long and therefore we will need some balance, but to do it will take a pinch of healthy madness from everyone".
