There is a possibility that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will face each other in a friendly competition. The match between the two superstars brought together Al Nassr versus PSG, on January 19, 2023.
Achraf Ben Ayad, a journalist for the Spanish media Mundo Deportivo, made this statement. PSG’s original plan was to play matches in Saudi Arabia during January the previous year. However, given the Covid-19 situation, the club decided to cancel the event.
On the other hand, it seems that PSG has moved the friendlies to January 2023. It is a fact that Achraf Ben Ayad made a statement about this on his personal social media account. Of course, this further strengthens the argument.
According to a post made on Achraf Ben Ayad’s personal social media account. “PSG will face a team consisting of Al Nassr and Al Hilal players on January 19 in Saudi Arabia.”
It is yet to be confirmed whether Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will compete against each other on the pitch in the future. However, CR7 and his family had arrived in Saudi Arabia by this time. The number 7 player will join Al Nassr as a new member of the team.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi fight
The match between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi always attracts a lot of attention. These two world-class players have also been able to maintain their level of consistency. In addition, both of them play for clubs which are fierce rivals to one another. Namely, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Every year, the two clubs face each other in the battle for the La Liga title. As well as other prestigious club awards. El Clasico is the name given to the match between these two clubs.
As a direct result of this, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi often compete with each other when playing for their respective clubs. El Clasico is indeed an event where these two best players can compete with each other.
Since Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Juventus and Lionel Messi moved to PSG, there has been a slight drop in the level of competition. The further here, the less likely it is for the two of them to meet. Especially considering that Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to play in Asian competition.
However, there is still a chance this competition will determine who has the best players to play. Precisely on January 19, 2023. Where PSG will compete in a friendly match against teams from Al Hilal and Al Nassr.
