This Tuesday, the Riyadh Season Cup announced that Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nassr) will face each other in a very likely final duel with their respective clubs. The eight-time and five-time Ballon d’Or winners will therefore meet, barring injury, a year after their last confrontation.

We have the name of the very possible last meeting between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. “The Last Dance”. This Tuesday, Saudi businessman and minister Turki Al-Sheikha revealed on his social networks that Al-Nassr, Al-Hilal and Inter Miami will face each other at the beginning of February 2024 – the date remaining to be defined – in the Saudi capital for the 4th edition of the Riyadh Season Cup. “The tournament is scheduled for the first week of February 2024, with the participation of stars from all participating clubs, in the Saudi capital Riyadh at the Kingdom Arena, which was recently inaugurated during the opening ceremony of the fourth edition, confirm the organizers of the competition. The tournament will bring together the biggest stars of world football, including Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo of Saudi club Al-Nassr and Argentine star Lionel Messi of American club Inter Miami, in a showdown that will make headlines, dubbed ”The Last Dance’we can read in the press release.

A year later, Messi and Ronaldo will meet again

This will therefore be, barring injury to one of the two stars, the first confrontation between the two in almost a year.. Indeed, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo crossed paths for the last time on a field on January 19, 2023. Playing under the colors of PSG at the time, the Argentine world champion had faced the five-time Ballon d’Or who was his within a selection of the best players in the Saudi Arabian championship. While Messi opened the scoring in the 3rd minute and Ronaldo responded with a double (34th, 45th +6), it was the capital club which won in a match rich in goals (5-4 ). The last official match between the two giants of their generation turned in favor of Ronaldo, when Juventus Turin won against FC Barcelona (0-3) in December 2020 with a double for CR7 in the group stage of a Champions League now over for them.
