Champions League: Messi Rivalry Ronaldo to Meet Again at Camp Nou

Lionel Messi’s rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo has enthralled football for the better part of a decade

and the pair will duel for potentially the final time when Barcelona host Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The two titans of the modern game, who split ownership of the Ballon d’Or between 2008-2017

were the talismans of Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid until Ronaldo left the Spanish capital for Juventus in 2018.

After the Portuguese forward arrived from Manchester United in 2009

El Clasico became synonymous with his rivalry with Barcelona captain Messi.

Since Ronaldo’s departure

the fixture has lost some of its glamour, leaving the football world eager for the pair to be pitted against each other again.

Those hopes were frustrated earlier in the group phase

with Ronaldo missing Barcelona’s 2-0 win in Turin after testing positive for Covid-19. Messi scored with a penalty.

Both sides have already qualified for the last 16 from Group G but Juventus can overtake Barcelona if they win at Camp Nou by three goals or more, or by any two-goal margin other than 2-0.

What is your say on today’s Champions League game, Can Juventus give a surprise?
