Barcelona vs Juventus - Messi-Ronaldo face off after two and a half years

Barcelona vs Juventus - Messi-Ronaldo face off after two and a half years

When Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid to join Juventus in July 2018, there was a lot of uncertainty about the Messi-Ronaldo duo. Being in a league between two countries means that the chances of meeting are very similar. However, the 2020-21 Champions League grouping provided an opportunity for the two to face each other.

However, Juventus-Barcelona will face in the group stage match of the Champions League on Wednesday. As a result, the two greats can be seen together again.

Lionel Messi is in plain form. But the Argentine prince will definitely want to do something extra on the field against his arch-rival Ronaldo. Ronaldo will also want to avenge the loss in the previous match. All in all, football fans are waiting to see a great fight.
