As the two most successful scorers in the history of the Champions League so far, Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, as opponents who have always been compared, rarely face directly in the Champions League.

Therefore, they fell into the 9th Serie A champion Juventus as the seeded team in Group G in the group draw, and had to encounter strong dialogue with the Serie A giants.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi’s first Champions League match was in the 2007-08 UEFA Champions League semi-finals, when Ronaldo was still
The last time the two played in the Champions League was in the 2010-11 season, when Ronaldo’s Real Madrid and Messi’s Barcelona met in the semifinals. Messi scored twice.

Barcelona, who eliminated Real Madrid, made persistent efforts and finally won the championship that season.
