Ronaldo V Bale

Ahead of tonight’s big game, we’ve put Bale and Ronaldo head to head to see who is really the best. And by best, we’re talking style not skills…

Starting with hairstyles... 


Both the Real Madrid players have experimented with these over time. Bale currently rocks a controversial man bun, which is the new marmite of haircuts. Although Ronaldo has had some pretty spicy looks over the years (including bleach blonde highlights) his current style is more low key. The four time Golden Boot winner reportedly got two lines cut into his hair to show support to a young cancer patient, to represent the scars left after an operation which he apparently paid for. We're actually a big fan of marmite Bale, but we're sorry Ronaldo's charitable tribute wins this one.     

1-0 Ronaldo   

Now onto their team kits... 

As both of their kits are red and pretty similar, we've opted for their away kits to mix it up a bit. All of the countries have upped their games this year when it comes to their kits, we just wish we could say the same about the football (cough cough). Starting with Wales' black, grey and green gear, we're going to be honest and say we're not a huge fan. It's a little too dull for our liking, especially in comparison to their stylish red and white home kit. Now onto Portugal's combination of turquoise, black and red... On paper those shades don't sound great together, but on the pitch they kind of work. We think both teams should stick to their home kit styles, but for this, Portugal's choice of brighter colours takes the win!     

2-0 Ronaldo  

Off the pitch...

Ronaldo is definitely as smart off the pitch as he is on... Although we're not sure about that cream and white suit?! Bale keeps it casual and to be fair you can't really go wrong with a pair of chino shorts and a grandad collar top. We're all for less is more, so Bale this one goes to you.

Good luck tonight lads!
