And so it only feels right that we revisit the time Cristiano Ronaldo was remarkably unselfish in the same situation a few years back.
Having struck twice for Real Madrid against Alaves at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2018, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner had the chance to bag his 50th career hat-trick when Gareth Bale was fouled inside the area in the 80th minute.
As Real's regular penalty taker, many assumed Ronaldo would step up from 12 yards in a bid to claim the match-ball.
But he had other ideas. Instead, Ronaldo let Karim Benzema take the spot-kick.
The Frenchman had been struggling in front of goal lately and missed a sitter earlier in the game, but got on the scoresheet thanks to Ronaldo's unselfish act.
As soon as the penalty was awarded, Ronaldo grabbed the ball and passed it to Benzema, who was very grateful to his teammate for his gesture.
The same be said for fellow Frenchman Griezmann, who was so happy that Messi let him take a 93rd minute penalty against Getafe when he had already bagged himself a brace.
Cameras caught the heartwarming moment the former Atletico Madrid man approached Messi and gave him a hug.
The two best players in football history have no problem being accommodating for their teammates.
