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.
The game also will be Suarez’s first official game in the Barca jersey after serving his four-month ban for biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup. On the other hand Gareth Bale has suffered a hip injury, placing him in doubt of playing the Clasico.
