Ahead of this season’s second and this year’s first El Clasico, reporters dedicated to the two teams selected and revealed the best 11 of the 21st century. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who have divided the football world for the past 15 years, have been named so for granted.
Leia Serbello, the Barcelona correspondent for The Athletic, chose a 4-3-3 formation. Goalkeeper Victor Valdes (Barcelona), defender Roberto Carlos, Sergio Ramos (both Real Madrid), Carles Puyol and Dani Alves (both Barcelona) were selected.
The midfield selected three Barcelona midfielders, Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta. In the attack, Ronaldinho was placed on the left, Messi was placed in the center, and Ronaldo was placed on the right.
Real reporter Dermot Corrigan also opted for a 4-3-3. The goalkeeper was a surprise. Instead of legend Iker Casillas, he chose Thibaut Courtois, who currently guards Real Madrid goal. The defense was the same with Carlos, Puyol and Alves, but Ramos was replaced by Fernando Hierro.
Iniesta and Xavi were the same in the midfield combination, but Xavi Alonso was chosen instead of Busquets as a defensive midfielder. In the attack, Messi on the left, Ronaldo on the right, and the original Ronaldo were placed in the center.
