The rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is known to be one of the greatest sports rivalries. The rivalry was at its peak when they were playing La Liga and used to clash in El Classico games. However, since Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid and shifted to Juventus the rivalry seemed to be faded away. After that, both played together only once when Juventus met Barcelona in a Champions League game. But now both are expected to meet in PSG vs Al Nassr friendly match at Riyadh and the date and time are set.
As the FIFA World Cup concluded, Lionel Messi joined PSG ahead of their French Cup game. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo received a grand welcome in Riyadh as he joined his Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr. As per reports, the Portuguese Star may miss the game against Al Tai FC on January 5 due to disciplinary action taken against him by FA. However, he will be available when PSG will arrive in Riyadh to play against Al Nassr players.
