Match was Between Ronaldo and Messi
It was a matchup between Ronaldo and Messi, who joined Saudi Al-Nasr this season. Ronaldo this season will be the captain of the Riyadh team. The Saudi Pro XI will be joined by Al Nasr and Al Hilal from Riyadh. PSG’s starting line-up includes France’s Mbappe and Brazil’s Neymar, as well as Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid teammates Sergio Ramos and Keylor Navas.
Since the departure of the former from Real Madrid in 2018, meetings between Ronaldo and Messi’s top teams have become a rarity. They have previously faced each other at least twice a season in the El Clasico between Madrid and Barcelona. Messi was the best naked champion there.
