Battle starts for the Best trio in the world of Football – BBC VS MSN
Bale, Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo drove Real Madrid to La Decima a year ago, while Messi, Suarez and Neymar motivated Barcelona’s treble win before in 2015. So which of the two will beat the competition this time around – the “BBC” or the ‘MSN’?
Bale, Benzema and Cristiano hit a consolidated 97 goals in 2013-14, with 28 of those coming in the club’s Champions League-winning crusade. 33% of Ronaldo’s 51 strikes (17) landed in the mainland competition to set another record while the Welsh midfielder included six and the France forward hit five. The BBC really oversaw more goals generally speaking in 2014-15: Ronaldo struck 61, Bale 17 and Benzema 22 to raise 100 strikes for the trident. Nonetheless, just the Frenchman (seven) was more productive in the Champions League as Cristiano netted 10 in Europe and Bale just two. Also, they were not able to touch off their team when it mattered most as Madrid lost to Juventus in the last four.
By then, there was another three-man attack on the scene. Messi (58 goals), Suarez (25) and Neymar (39) hit a joined 122 goals for Barcelona as Luis Enrique’s side guaranteed the treble. What’s more, the Uruguayan’s count is all the more great considering he was banned toward the season’s start and just made his introduction in late October for the Catalan club. In Europe, Messi hit 10, Suarez seven and Neymar 10. Those incorporated one each for the Uruguayan and the Brazilian in the 3-1 last win over Juventus with Messi shockingly not on the score sheet in Berlin.
Analyzed for the poor form of the BBC towards the end of last season, Benzema reacted by ensuring that the trio offered more than just goals. That is genuine, however even regarding assists the Madrid three were more terrible off than their Barca partners in 2014-15, with 46 assists between them as the three South Americans racked up 55 for the Blaugrana.
In 2015-16, both tridents have made solid starts. There were questions over Madrid after the Rafa period started with a 0-0 draw at Sporting Gijon a month ago, yet that was something of an oddity result as Madrid made 27 chances at El Molinon. Karim Benzema was lost from that one, yet he has subsequent to returned and now has two goals in two matches, while Bale netted twice in the 5-0 win at home to Betis before the international break and was heavenly in an unselfish part as Ronaldo scored five in the 6-0 triumph at Espanyol on Saturday evening. In only three matches, the trio as of now have nine goals between them.
Barca have played more matches because of their concern in the Uefa Super Cup and the two-legged Spanish Supercopa preceding the start of La Liga. Messi scored two in the 5-4 win over Sevilla in Tbilisi, included another in the second leg against Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou and hit the victor as Barca beat Atletico Madrid 2-1 on Saturday night.
The success of the MSN and the BBC is likely to represent the deciding moment the possibility of Spain’s greatest sides and the two tridents – drove by Messi and Ronaldo separately – will battle it out at home and in Europe for the competitions most noteworthy prize at club level.
