Football icons Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will go head-to-head probably for one last time when Cristiano Ronaldo's Riyadh All-Star XI take on Paris Saint-Germain in Saudi Arabia on Thursday. With the Argentine superstar a World Cup champion with PSG and the Portuguese talisman now playing his trade in the Saudi Pro League, the world will hold its breath for one final time to witness arguably the greatest individual football rivalry of the modern era.

The game against Messi and PSG offers a reminder of the Portugal international’s glory days before Ronaldo focuses on Al Nassr’s domestic title challenge and bid to qualify for the Asian Champions League.
The Messi-Ronaldo rivalry was never greater than when they played for Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively, and their scoring feats saw the players dominate Spanish and European soccer.
The showdown with Messi in these circumstances would have been unthinkable just a year ago when Ronaldo was still scoring with regularity for an albeit struggling Manchester United team.
Ronaldo will not be short on motivation when coming up against Messi and an all-star PSG team which could also include Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
