Real Madrid v Girona - La Liga

Two of the best players in the world will face each other when Egypt meet Portugal in a friendly encounter. Since Mohamed Salah is the star of the Premier League and Cristiano Ronaldo is on a scoring spree in the Spanish league, there is much hype around this face-off.

The Egyptian is in the form of his life and with the Portuguese back in form again, this will be a clash of the Titans. While both of them are evenly-matched due to their current form, there is a feeling that Cristiano Ronaldo will outshine the former Roma star.

And here are 5 reasons why…

#5 Experience

The Portugal captain is now 33 years old and has tons of experience playing at the top-level. Salah, meanwhile, is younger and might be quicker, but in the biggest of matches, experience always edges out—especially when it comes to Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Whenever people criticise him for being an old hack, he comes back stronger. He knows that his body doesn’t support him like it used to, so he uses his experience to make the use of his time of the pitch. His off-the-ball runs are a testament to that he is always looking for that little space to run into and maximize his chances to score.

And since he has played so much football, his brain is auto-triggered about what to do next.
