Ronaldinho proved the catalyst for a change in fortunes at Barcelona as they won La Liga in 2005 and a league and Champions League double in 2006.

The Brazilian produced one of the finest individual displays in recent memory on 19 November, 2005, as Barca thumped a shell-shocked Real 3-0 in Madrid.

Real Madrid reject Samuel Eto'o put the visitors in front, before Ronaldinho scored two sensational solo goals in the second half to underline Barca's superiority and his own position as the world's finest player.

Some Real fans did the unthinkable - they gave Ronaldinho a standing ovation.
