UCL: Lio Messi Is Desperete To Face Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo.
Messi And His fomer Real Madrid Rival Cristiano Ronaldo set to face each other in Champions League match today. The report claim that barca Captain is desperate to
line up against Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo when the two clubs do battle in the Champions League tonight.
Barca and Juve have already qualified for the last 16 and the midweek clash is nothing more than a dead rubber, and Ronald Koeman would normally be expected to rest Messi for this tie.
According to the report by Daily Mail, Barca Manger is prepared to relent and will start Messi against the Old Lady, in which he could find himself coming up against Ronaldo for the very last time.
The two attackers have battled for supremacy over the past decade but are now entering the latter stages of their careers, with Ronaldo now 35 and Messi – who is still expected to leave Barcelona next summer – two years younger than his rival at 33.
The last time that Messi and Ronaldo lined up against each other was in El Clasico in May 2018, during which both players netted in a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou.
