There should really only be one winner when you put Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric together in a sprint race...
Ronaldo, of course, is recognised as one of the most powerful players in world football and is most certainly a speed demon. Modric, on the other hand, is one of the classiest players in the game right now, but he's not exactly known for his pace.
The Croatian certainly has a touch of genius about him, but he shouldn't have anything on Ronaldo in terms of pace. However, his recent race with the forward may well have taken a few by surprise, as he certainly gave the World Player of the Year a run for his money.

Unsurprisingly, though, despite coming from behind, Ronaldo overtook his Real Madrid teammate in the short sprint.
In truth, there's not many players in world football who would be able to take on Ronaldo in a sprint race, so we will give Modric some credit for his fine effort.
And both Modric and Ronaldo will no doubt be key to Real Madrid this season as the club go in search of domestic and European success under the guidance of Rafa Benitez.
Ultimately, Ronaldo is still the club's talisman and will be relied upon to produce the goods in front of goal, while Modric is the ideal player to keep things ticking in the middle of the park. His absence from the side last term may well have just cost the Bernanbeu outfit the title, so it's crucial he stays fit.
Will Ronaldo inspire Real Madrid to the title next season? Have your say below!
