Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to meet again in Champions League. It was the draw for Group G that will catch people’s eye.
The Champions League group stage draw threw up some mammoth clashes and we will be treated to an early heavyweight showdown in this season’s group stages.
The draw was made on Thursday afternoon and it pitted Juventus and Barcelona against each other AKA Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo.
Messi and Ronaldo may be well into their 30s now but we are sure to be in for a brilliant spectacle… twice.
Head-to-head, Messi has the advantage winning 16 of their 35 encounters to Ronaldo’s 10, with the remaining nine ending in draws.
Messi has also scored 22 goals in those games to Ronaldo’s 19.
The pair have only met five times in Champions League games, and you have to go back to 2011 to find their last encounter.
