And while Ronaldo has plundered 15 goals in seven La Liga outings this term against the Barca ace's seven strikes, Suarez values Messi more highly irrespective of the pair's record in 2014/15.

"In my opinion Leo is better [than Ronaldo]," Suarez was quoted as saying by Mirror.

"I train and play with Leo every day and he surprises me every day. He is unique.

"Everybody knows what he has brought to Barcelona, what kind of world-class player he is.

“For me he is the best player in the world for what he has already done, and he’s still so young."

Messi and Ronaldo will face each other on Saturday when Madrid host Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu, with Suarez in line to make his Barca debut after serving his four-month ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup.
