Casillas: Ron better than Messi


READ: Real cruise, Gunners great escape

Ronaldo - who moved within a goal of Raul's Champions League scoring record last night - has struck 20 times in 12 games this season, compared to Messi's nine goals in 11 matches for the Catalans.

"Ronaldo is better than Messi - he is in brilliant form at the moment," Real captain Casillas told Canal Plus. "I'm only wanting to think about our team, though.

"Our dynamic is: win, win, win. Now the world will be watching, but we are at home [against Barca] and our goal is to come away with all three points.

"We are in top form heading into the Clasico, having had eight consecutive victories. We are comfortable in any system - 4-3-3 and 4-4-2 - we know we have a great team and that's what will lead us to fight for everything this season."
