While, Champions League is towards its business end and heading towards an exciting finish, the excitement turns towards Tuesday’s inconsquential clash between Juventus and Barcelona.
Juventus take a trip to Barcelona for the Group H game at Camp Nou. The game is looked forward to by all the football fans, as Lionel Messi returns to the starting XI for Barcelona, while Christiano Ronaldo and him meet for the first time since 2018, after the latter’s departure from Real Madrid.
The face-off between the two stars was supposed to take place earlier this year, but Ronaldo contracted the COVID-19 virus, after which he had to go into home isolation. Barcelona defeated Juventus by 2-0 in Turin, so the latter would want to avenge the defeat.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been going head-to-head in football for over a decade and their magnificence at the very top of the game means both are firmly in the GOAT category. Since Ronaldo left Real Madrid, this will be for the first time that the two legends will play against each other.
