Messi and Ronaldo locked in Spanish scoring duel

I have a say

MADRID (AP)—Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s exploits are quickly turning the Spanish league title chase into a shootout between Europe’s most prolific goalscorers.

Ronaldo’s 11 goals have guided Real Madrid to the top of the standings after nine games while Barcelona trails by one point thanks in part to Messi’s seven strikes.

The two forwards, who are also the top two scorers in the Spanish league, appear to be locked in an increasingly personal duel, too.

Ronaldo scored four in response to Messi’s brace last week, while the Argentina forward added another double in Saturday’s win over Sevilla—right after Ronaldo scored two against Hercules.

Ronaldo has a chance of breaking the league’s all-time record of 38 goals in a season.
