Portugal captain Ronaldo, who has succeeded Messi as World Player of the Year after four consecutive awards for the Argentina skipper, has netted an incredible 15 goals for Real in seven La Liga outings this season.Messi has seven in eight games and is one short of the Spanish top-flight scoring record of 251 goals set by former Athletic Bilbao forward Telmo Zarra six decades ago.Rodriguez, 23, has yet to consistently reproduce the form that helped him net a tournament-best six goals for Colombia at the World Cup but flashes of brilliance suggest he is not far off his best.Playing just behind the forwards, he is expected to make the assists that will release the likes of Ronaldo and Benzema into space and a powerful left foot means he can also find the net from distance.TONI Kroos, 24, was a key performer for Germany in their triumph at the 2014 World Cup but has the unenviable task at Real of filling the position vacated by former Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso, now at Bayern.
