The formation was 4-3-3. The offensive line was made up of Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi. Ronaldinho was a superstar representing Barcelona in the 2000s. He fascinated Barcelona fans with his brilliant skills and footwork. Ronaldinho scored 94 goals and 70 assists in 207 games in all competitions for five years at Barcelona.
Ronaldo and Messi are world-class soccer stars who need no explanation. The two players formed a rivalry over the world’s best soccer player in the 2010s. ‘El Clásico’ received a lot of attention when the two players played for Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively. Messi scored 672 goals in 778 games for Barcelona over 16 years, and Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid for 9 years.
The midfield consisted of Zinedine Zidane, Luka Modric, and Andres Iniesta. Zidane became a Madrid legend after joining Real Madrid in 2001.

Iniesta was a leading figure in Barcelona’s golden age along with Messi and Xavi Hernández. He played for Barcelona for 22 years, including his youth days, and experienced two treble victories. Iniesta provided Barcelona with a variety of attacking options with his excellent playmaking ability, de-pressing, and dribbling.
The defense consisted of Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Carles Puyol, and Daniel Alves. Marcelo and Ramos are players who were together in Real Madrid’s heyday. The two players played a key role in Real Madrid’s three consecutive Champions League wins from the 2015/16 season to the 2017/18 season.
Puyol was the captain of Barcelona, called the ‘Heart of Catalonia’. Puyol, a ‘one-club man’ who only spent his professional career in Barcelona, was small in stature but was loved for his fighting spirit in defense. Alves was considered the best right-back in the world during his time at Barcelona due to his outstanding aggression. He played for Barcelona for eight years from 2008 to 2016 and briefly returned to the team in November 2021.
The goalkeeper gloves were worn by Iker Casillas. Casillas, who grew up in Real Madrid’s youth team, signed a professional contract with Real Madrid in July 1999. He played for Real Madrid for 16 years, leading the club to its heyday. Casillas won 19 trophies at Real Madrid.
