Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo get personal in Banksy-inspired graffiti


Messi and Ronaldo


The build-up to El Clasico has been crazy – in some ways more than others.

Urban graffiti artist Tvboy has taken the opportunity to promote his talents with a football-theme piece.

Inspired by Banksy’s Kissing Coppers artwork in Brighton, the Catalan artist depicted Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo sharing a similar kiss before their big clash. Naturally, it’s garnered a lot of publicity.

The stars of their Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively, all eyes will be on them this weekend.

Differing fortunes

With Barcelona now out of the Champions League, this is truly a must-win game for the reigning La Liga champions.

If they are to retain their title they’ll need a win to go level on points.

Madrid would still have one game in hand but Zinedine Zidane’s side will be surging with confidence after a 4-2 victory over Bayern Munich at Bernabeu. Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in a match plagued by controversy.
