Could you give some additional information as to what you intend to do? If 
you are strictly matching, by position within the lists, such that you would 
print the list elements only if: 

for x in range(min(len(lista),len(listb))):
a = lista[x]
b = listb[x]
if a == b:
print a, b

that is easy, however, if you want to match more complex patterns, or wish 
to match list elements not in the same position then the complexity of the 
task increases.
