The rivalry from Lionel Messi with Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the biggest of the last decades. Both players had been clearly the best ones during the last years and that has provoked a huge constant comparison between them, regarding goals, assists, titles won and much more.
Many times, it was said that the Argentinian and the Portuguese hate each other, but they never had any fight to make us think such a thing was true. This Tuesday FC Barcelona received Juventus on Nou Camp and the reaction of both players when they met each other on the field revealed a lot about his relationship.
Messi went to Cristiano and hug him in the middle of the pitch. The image was very repeated on social media and revealed that, despite what many times it was said, the relationship between them is not bad. After all, they met each other too many times when CR7 played at Real Madrid.
Messi and Cristiano faced themselves 35 times, with a result of 16 victories for the Argentinian, 10 for the Portuguese and 9 ties. Messi scored 22 goals and gave 12 assists on those games, while Cristiano scored 19 times and gave just one assist. Due to their age, this could be one of the last direct matches of both legends.
