Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid
La Liga's two biggest stars clash in the Clasico, but it is the Portuguese forward who has scored more goals in Catalonia in this fixture recently

La Liga's three top scorers will be on display at the Camp Nou on Sunday evening as Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid visit a Barcelona side boasting Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Messi has eight more league goals than his eternal rival this season, although in 2018 the Portugual captain has 20 La Liga strikes - three more than the Argentine. 

Latest odds

On home turf and in fine form, it is unsurprising to find Messi lead the goalscorers market, with bet365 offering him at 4/11 (1.44) to net at anytime.

The maestro netted at the Bernabeu earlier this season, where the Blaugrana triumphed 3-0, and is the top scorer in the history of this fixture.

In the victory in the Spanish capital back in December it was Luis Suarez who opened the scoring and the Uruguayan is priced at 3/1 (4.00) to do so once more and at 8/13 (1.61) to score at anytime.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has scored in his last eight La Liga appearances, netting 16 goals in the process and the 33-year-old is available at a healthy looking 20/21 (1.98) to continue that scoring run.

Can Ronaldo outshine Messi at the Camp Nou?

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored the majority of his goals in the Clasico away from home and in recent matches in Catalonia, he has been more prolific than Messi.

Indeed, Real Madrid's number seven has scored in four of the last six meetings between these two sides at the Camp Nou in all competitions, during which time Messi has netted in just one. 

Tips and predictions

The last time either of these players scored a brace in this fixture in Catalonia was in 2012, when they both netted twice.

Messi is available at 15/8 (2.88) to score two or more, while Ronaldo can be backed at 9/2 (5.50).
