and his team Real Madrid played in the semi-final Copa del Ray match against Sevilla this week, and swiftly edged out their opponents in the 1-0 game.
Ronaldo apparently believes the final will come down to his team against rivals Barcelona, the team for which Lionel Messi plays. These two stars are constantly being pitted against each other in terms of goals scored etc, though Ronaldo insists there's no real rivalry.
"I don't have an obsession or a direct rivalry with Messi," Ronaldo said (via ESPN). "I feel the same way about other players. But, one thing is certain: I want to be the best of all footballers."
