Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to battle it out in the Copa Del Rey semi-finals at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. The clash is coming just a few days after both sides dropped points in the La Liga table, with Barcelona losing 1-0 to newly promoted Almeria, while Real Madrid endured a frustrating 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid.
Ahead of the El Clasico game, there are two stars who are one of the best players in Europe present in both teams.
Karim Benzema is arguably the best striker in the world. The Frenchman was named in the FIFPro team of the year after his effort and hard work that led to Real Madrid's Champions League trophy. Benzema has so far netted a total of 18 goals and registered 4 assists in all competitions.
Roberto Lewandowski on the other hand is ranked as the best striker in Europe. Since joining Barcelona, the Polish international has become a consistent source of goals for the Catalans. He took the mantle of goalscoring and has been doing that for fun throughout this season.
Lewandowski has scored a total of 28 goals and provided 8 assists in all competitions for Barcelona. Having seen their stats, who do you think is a better striker?
