That's the rivalry - Them essentially trying to persuade Madoka in diametrically opposite directions. And it's a rivalry that continued all the way to the last episode of PMMM.

Sayaka and Kyouko was also a rivalry, albeit a short-lived one. It's shortness is partly why I never listed it amongst my favorite anime rivalries.
