Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Michael Owen snubs Ronaldinho in all-time El Clasico combined XI

Former Real Madrid striker Owen has omitted arguably one of the best footballers of all-time from his combined XI ahead of El Clasico.

Having enjoyed a season at the Bernabeu after leaving in 2004, Owen is well-placed to judge on some of the best talents to feature when Real Madrid have faced Barcelona over the years.

However, there is no room for Ronaldinho in Owen’s all-time XI, while fellow Barcelona stalwart Xavi and Real Madrid legend Raul also miss out.

Owen has opted for an unbalanced back three, but you can’t argue when Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Maradona are your front line.
