The two Real Madrid superstars and most expensive players in the world meet as Portugal take on Wales, and Goal takes a look at the numbers to see which one has the edge
Just over a month ago they won the Champions League together. But on Wednesday, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale go head to head on the football field for a place in the final of Euro 2016 as Portugal take on Wales in Lyon. So which Galactico is the better player?
Bale replaced Ronaldo as the world’s most expensive footballer when he moved from Tottenham to Santiago Bernabeu for €100 million in the summer of 2013 and alongside the Portuguese, the two have won the Champions League twice in three seasons for the Spanish side.
Much is made of their relationship off the pitch and although they have both maintained that they get on fine, Bale was asked again by the media on Monday and surprised some by revealing that the pair have not been in touch by text message ahead of their quarter-final clash.
