Fans Are Dreaming Of A Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo Champions League Final Showdown
There's still a long way to go but it does look the stars might just be aligning for a Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo Champions League final.
UEFA announced the draw for the quarter finals and semi-finals this morning.
Ajax vs Juventus, Liverpool vs Porto, Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City and Barcelona vs Manchester United are the tasty ties we've got to look forward to for the next round but it's also been nicely set up for the two footballing titans to lock horns on the biggest stage.

If Juventus get past Ajax in a rematch of the 1996 final, they will face the winner of the Spurs vs City tie in the semi-finals, while Barcelona will play the victors from Liverpool-Porto if they are able to overcome United.
And should Messi and Ronaldo's sides prevail, Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano will play host to a mouthwatering final featuring the two best players in world football. It's just a possibility at but it's got fans very excited.
Stage set for a strong semi final round and a colossol Ronaldo vs Messi UCL final :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

It won't be the first time the pair of five-time Ballon d'Or winners have turned out in the same Champions League final as Messi scored an awe-inspiring header in Barca's 2-0 win over Ronaldo's United in Rome in 2009, but the rivalry has escalated to epic proportions since then.
Do you see a Messi vs Ronaldo final happening?
