    asserting superiority over others

    Hello to all,

    Let's say there is a competition between two people or two groups of people with each side trying to prove they are the better side. What is the common way to describe that?

    Which of these two is better?

    There is a constant competition between Bale and Ronaldo and they are always trying to assert their superiority over one another.


    or

    There is a constant competition between Bale and Ronaldo and they are always trying to establish their supremacy over one another.

    Also, does this work for you? :

    She is very competitive. She is always trying to assert her superiority over others.
