Juventus Ace Cristiano Ronaldo Tackles Barcelona Rival Lionel Messi In Champions League Clash

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo was determined not to let Barcelona rival Lionel Messi overshadow him in the clash of the GOATS.

Portuguese ace Ronaldo was given a frosty reception by Barca fans on his arrival at the Nou Camp for the encounter due to his Real Madrid association.

But he wasn't fazed one bit, putting Juve in front with a penalty in the 13th minute, before the visitors doubled their lead through Weston McKennie's bicycle kick.

Ronaldo added a second spot-kick shortly after the restart to take his Champions League goal tally to 134.
