Spanish TV network Canal+ just don't miss a trick, do they? After Cristiano Ronaldo fired home Real Madrid's second goal of the game against Eibar on Sunday, the current Ballon d'Or holder had to endure chants of 'Messi, Messi' Messi' being aimed in his direction. 

The Portuguese superstar's rivalry with the Barcelona prodigy has been well documented in recent years, with two players having long been recognised as the leading footballers in the world.

Eibar fans, then, were more than happy to take a little dig at Ronaldo as he departed the Ipurua Municipal Stadium.

To his credit, Ronaldo failed to react and made his way onto the team bus without hesitation. But, unsurprisingly, the cameras remained firmly fixated on the world's best player. 

On the team bus, however, Ronaldo looked far from happy during a discussion with one member of staff from Real Madrid. Perhaps Ronaldo was frustrated with the Messi chants or he just wasn't happy with his side's performance during the relatively straightforward win. 

It's clear for all to see that he wasn't entirely thrilled about something, but it's unlikely that we will get to the bottom of this one.

Another battle 

Attention will now turn to the 2015 Ballon d'Or. Ronaldo and Messi are set to go head-to-head once again for the most prestigious individual award in world football. Brazil captain Neymar is in the running, of course, but it's unlikely that he will eclipse the duo of Ronaldo and Messi at this stage. 

They remain the world's best players, but Ronaldo might just have to watch his man rival claim the Ballon d'Or award in January. 

Who will win the Ballon d'Or? Have your say below!
