Ramos, meanwhile, missed Spain’s internationals due to the injury and also played no part in the Blancos’ 5-0 victory at the weekend which puts him in a doubt to play in Clasico.

Bale’s spot is expected to be filled by Isco while Nacho fills in for Ramos. Karim Benzema is back in the 20-man squad of Real Madrid having been rested with a foot injury against Levante and is expected to step back into the XI at the expense of on-loan forward Javier Hernandez.

The Real star has already netted 15 goals in seven La Liga appearances this term against Messi’s seven strikes. It’s very hard to tell who is over whom yet Suarez believes it’s the Argentine who is the better of the two irrespective of their record in 2014-15.

Suarez was quoted as saying by Mirror,“In my opinion Leo is better (than Ronaldo),I train and play with Leo every day and he surprises me every day. He is unique. Everybody knows what he has brought to Barcelona, what kind of world-class player he is. For me he is the best player in the world for what he has already done, and he’s still so young.”

Messi and Ronaldo are set to confront on Saturday when Madrid host Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu.
