If you take a moment to digest the many glittering highlights of Messi's career so far, this is actually a far more difficult question to answer than you think. The player himself has often said that he does not care for individual awards, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais (via Inside Spanish Football), but four consecutive Ballon D'Or's cannot simply be ignored. Scoring against every La Liga team consecutively is surely a record that will never be equalled and must go down as one of his best ever accomplishments. An unbelievable return of 91 goals in a calendar year is also likely to stand the test of time. Being a major part of Pep Guardiola's sextuple-winning side, a feat never before achieved in 150 years of football around the world. Becoming Barcelona's all-time record scorer, and about to become leading El Clasico scorer, leading Champions League scorer and all-time highest scorer in La Liga. None of these achievements are insignificant, and there are others. Perhaps it won't even be anything ...

The one with the “Calma, Calma…” It was the game with everything on the line.

In recent years though the fixture has become less of a treat with 17 meetings between the two in the past three seasons alone. However, on the brink of their first clash this season on Saturday there is an excitement and freshness brought by the addition of new cast members to the drama that El Clasico almost never fails to deliver.

With just three points separating the sides after nine games of the new season, the tie threatens to be as competitive as ever and could well be decided by the individual brilliance of one of the stars on show. As stars go, they dont come much bigger than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who, between them, have won the last five iterations of the FIFA Ballon d'Or or World Player of the Year prize.

What is tHE MEANING OF THIS? Barca A movie maker? -filming Real defender pepe- Barcelona have a scouting video from two seasons ago detailing the 'unsporting behaviour' of Real Madrid defender Pepe, it is claimed.

It has been a successful season for Real Madrid, with the capital club capturing the La Liga crown to end a period of dominance by Barcelona, who had won the three previous titles. Eliminated from the Champions League and the Copa del Rey, Jose Mourinho's men have just one game left in the current campaign - their Liga clash at home to Mallorca at the weekend. The 2011-12 season did not get off to the most positive of starts for Madrid, however, as they lost the Super Copa to a Barca side fresh off the beach in a series soured by Mourinho poking Pep Guardiola's assistant Tito Vilanova in the eye. And by the end of September, Madrid had lost to Levante in La Liga and drawn at Racing Santander. However, that turned out to be the storm before the calm as Mourinho's men went on an impressive winning streak which lasted until their El Clasico defeat at home to Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu on December 10. As so often before, Barcelona made Madrid pay with a 3-1 win and a month later knocked their biggest ...

A press conference is scheduled for Friday when Guardiol ...
