Real Madrid's Ramos: Facing Barcelona's Messi means you're facing the best
Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos admits they must beat the best when they face Barcelona star Lionel Messi this weekend. Messi struck all four goals in Barcelona' 4-1 win over Arsenal last night to warm up for the El Clasico.
Ramos conceded: "Facing Messi you are facing the best, not only now, he's been like this for a few years. We must take our hat off to him because he is a player that makes the difference, and today, although Barcelona has its bad games or good games Messi continues to maintain that difference, and at a high level.
"He is the most feared player of Barcelona."
He added: "We face a moment in the season where points really make the difference between Barcelona and us. Any error can cost you the league."
