Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will face each other once again in the Champions League and it promises to be a great battle.

The Champions League draw for the 2020/21 season took place yesterday and left us with many games to look forward to. The talk of the day was Juventus and Barcelona paired in the same group. It means we will get to witness the famous Ronaldo vs Messi battle once again!

It would be the first time the pair will meet since CR7 left Real Madrid for Juventus.

Ronaldo and Messi might be well advanced in age but both players still possess enough quality on the pitch. For many, they remain the two best players in the world.

Juventus vice president Pavel Nedved shares the same thoughts and expects an interesting tie when the Bianconeri face the Catalan giants in the Champions League.

“The match against Barcelona will be a great challenge and it will be fascinating because it confronts those who, in my opinion, are still the two best players in the world, Ronaldo and Messi,” Nedved told Juve’s website after the Champions League draw.

“In addition, Pjanic and Arthur will also face each other, and this will be another challenge within the challenge.”

The full schedule for the group stage has not yet been determined, but it will begin on October 20-21.

The stage is set for Cristiano Ronaldo to add more records to his name and even do so at the expense of his strong rival Lionel Messi.
