It’s Messi vs Ronaldo as Barca host Juventus in a top notch Champions League battle

Date:

The wait is finally over. It’s Messi vs Ronaldo time! People have been longing for this day ever since the draw was made.

They were also supposed to meet on the 29th of October but CR7 contracted COVID-19 due to which he missed the match. The last time these two sides met Barcelona completely outplayed Juventus to win 2-0.

Messi vs Ronaldo tonight in UCL Clash


Barcelona come into the match having lost their La Liga fixture 2-1 while Juve come into the match on the back of a 2-1 derby win against Torino. For Barcelona Ousmane Dembele, Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto are out with injury while Juve’s Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral miss out due to the same reason.


Barca are the only team with a 100% record in this season’s UCL and they would definitely like to end the group stage with that record intact. Juventus need to beat Barca by 3 goals atleast to get first spot.


Ronald Koeman might change his formation to 4-3-1-2 to accomodate his lack of wingers. Andrea Pirlo should stick to his 3-5-2 as there is no reason why he should change. Whatever the result will be, it will be a huge event for fans all over the world as finally the two legends meet after two years.
They last met on 28th October 2018 when Barca and Real drew 2-2 with both Messi and Ronaldo on the scoresheet. It will also be Arthur Melo against his former club and a clash between two best friends Frenkie De Jong and Matthijs De Ligt.



Predicted Lineups:



Barcelona (4-3-1-2): Ter Stegen, Alba, Lenglet, De Jong, Dest, Pjanic, Busquets, Coutinho, Messi, Braithwaite, Griezmann

Juventus (3-5-2): Szczesny, Bonucci, De Ligt, Cuadrado, Alex Sandro, Rabiot, Dybala, Arthur, Chiesa, Ronaldo,Morata
