FC Barcelona V Real Madrid CF: Battle of the WAGs

0 of 9

    While there will be an epic battle on the pitch, an equally enticing battle of WAGs goes on unnoticed behind the scenes. Both teams boast some of the world’s best players, and with that comes the pristine privilege of bagging the best looking girls on offer.

    Cristiano Ronaldo can clearly run away with the show; he's been associated with every other beauty! Real Madrid players might be more lucky to win the girls in comparison to the Catalan giants who've got more trophies to boost about, and we all know every girl loves a winner! 

Malena Costa: Carles Puyol

1 of 9

    Barcelona man-beast Carles Puyol is head over heels in love with his new girlfriend, model Malena Costa–yeah, you can see why.

    So much so that he dedicated his recent winning header against Valencia to Costa, by making a heart symbol with both hands. Aw. Behind the rough exterior, Carles is just a big romantic softy.

Irina Shayk: Christiano Ronaldo

2 of 9

    Russian model Irina Shayk is the girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo. One of the many beauty's Ronaldo has been with, this one might just be the one Ronaldo will have kids with. 

Antonella Roccuzzo: Lionel Messi

3 of 9

    Antonella is 22 years old, and she was born in Lionel’s hometown of Rosario, Argentina, where she was studying Nutrition.

    You might wonder how these two love birds met. Was it at school? Did they live in the same neighborhood?

    Well, they did meet when they were just five years old. She is Lionel’s best friend Lucas Scaglia’s cousin, so they basically grew up together. 

    Maybe she is the woman behind Lionel Messi's, err success! 

Nagore Aranburu: Xabi Alonso

4 of 9

    The wife of Spain star Xabi Alonso is considered among the most prominent WAGs. The Spanish actress caused a rift between Alonso and former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez during the midfielder's time on Merseyside.

    She selfishly decided to give birth to their son Jontxu in the middle of a Champions League campaign, forcing Alonso to miss a match against Inter Milan.

Hayet Abidal: Eric Abidal

5 of 9

    Hayet Abidal is the wife of FC Barcelona and France international defender Eric Abidal. The couple has been married since July 2007.

    The couple also has two daughters Meliana, who was born in 2004 and Canelia, who was born in 2006.

    Abidal met his wife Hayet when he was still a teenager.

Anna Maria Lewe: Mesut Ozil

6 of 9

    The Beautiful Anna Maria Lewe was born in 1981 in Germany, and her impressive good looks comes from her German, Scottish, American and Irish heritage.

    You see her father, Michael Lewe, is an American advertising writer, while her mother, Soraya Lewe Tacke, has an exotic blend of Scotland, Germany and Ireland. It is quite obvious that Soraya was a model, but when you are a mother of six, you put aside her fab life in the runway and turn into a fashionable mother.

Dorien Rose: Ibrahim Afellay

7 of 9

    The 27-year-old model and actress Dorien Rose has been dating Barcelona’s latest addition, Dutchman, Ibrahim Afellay. Born to a Dutch father and German mother, she has lived in Hong Kong and her first language is English despite moving back to Holland when she was six.

    In her modeling career, she has had quite some success with several modeling contracts and stints, even landing a feature in Playboy. She was also awarded the first Dutch Playmate of the Year.

    She’s not just a famous lingerie model, she has played the lead role in the 2006 movie Purgatory, directed by Mike Myers.

Shakira: Pique

8 of 9

    I doubt this particular woman needs any introduction. The "Waka Waka" singer is a world renowned celebrity and doesn’t need a tag of Gerard Pique’s name alongside her to be recognized.

    Although 10 years younger, Pique was blamed for Shakira’s break-up with her partner of 11 years. 

Sara Carbonero: Casillas

9 of 9

    One of the hottest WAGs and the girlfriend of Real Madrid stopper Casillas. Sara is a Spanish TV presenter for Telecinco and a sports journalist. 

    In July 2009, Carbonero was voted "The Sexiest Reporter in the World."
