It’s time for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to go head-to-head in as FC Barcelona and Juventus face off in 2020 UEFA Champions League play. Tuesday’s match features two of the modern era’s greatest soccer talents facing off again, continuing a player rivalry that was once at the center of El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga play. Messi and Ronaldo have not faced off since the Portuguese star left Real Madrid in 2018 to go play in Italy. The two were originally set to meet earlier in group stage play. However, Ronaldo missed the match after testing positive for COVID-19. As for the group stage standings, there is little on the line for either club. Barcelona and Juventus have both already locked up advancement out of the group stage.
