ST: Luis Suarez v Lionel Messi

Perhaps the best head-to-head battle that this particular list has to offer, these two men are both extraordinarily gifted individuals who repeatedly have fans on the edge of their seats when moving forward in possession.

Uruguayan international Suarez has set aside all of the reprehensible on-field behaviour that has previously tainted his reputation and instead chosen to remind the footballing community of his wonderful talent which has already seen him notch 28 league goals this season as the spearhead of Liverpool's surprising title charge.

Fellow South American Messi also requires little introduction. Although some may argue he has been slightly inferior to Ronaldo this season, the Argentine - as showcased by his ultra-composed three-goal haul inside the Bernabeu on Sunday - remains as good as he always was.

Who wins?

Suarez's sensational form this season would not see him lose many comparisons of this nature, but Messi is one of these few exceptions.

If Barcelona are to put a shaky period behind them and fully challenge Real and Diego Simeone's Atletico for the La Liga title, then they will need their most-prized asset to be at his very best heading into the final straight.
