‘Meho War’ maybe the last… This morning, face-to-face confrontation after 2 years

The epilogue of ‘Meho Daejeon’ is coming.

Paris Saint-Germain (France) and Al Nasr Al-Hilal (above Saudi Arabia) will have a friendly match at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at 2:00 am on the 20th (Korean time). It is the first confrontation in 772 days between Lionel Messi (Paris) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr). Since each of them is playing for a soccer federation team in a different continent, and they are also old enough, there is a high chance that this will be their last game. 토토사이트

The last confrontation between the two was a group stage match in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League in December 2020 as FC Barcelona (Messi, Spain) and Juventus (Ronaldo, Italy), respectively. On that occasion, Ronaldo scored twice to beat Barcelona 3-0. The first meeting was also in the Champions League. It was a match between Barcelona and Manchester United (England) in the first leg of the 2008 Champions League semi-final. The match ended in a goalless draw.

The two, who have divided world soccer for the past decade, have faced each other 36 times in club and national teams. As for the record, Messi has the advantage with 16 wins, 9 draws and 11 losses. In terms of attack points, Messi is ahead of Ronaldo (21 goals and 1 assist) with 22 goals and 12 assists. The confrontation between the two culminated in ‘El Clasico’ when Ronaldo moved to Real Madrid in 2009. In the nine years that Messi and Ronaldo reigned in Spanish La Liga, there has never been a goalless El Clasico.

Through last year’s World Cup in Qatar, the fates of the two legends completely diverged. Messi became the champion, but Ronaldo was pushed out of the selection and kicked out of his team. Nevertheless, interest in ‘Meho Daejeon’ is still hot. A special ticket to meet the two players in the locker room after the game was auctioned off for 2.66 million dollars (approximately 3.29 billion won). In Korea, you can watch the live broadcast through OTT service TVing.
