And according to The Mail, the Argentine is ‘desperate’ to line up against his competition once more.

Messi has been rested for Barca’s last two Champions League matches, where they beat Dynamo Kiev 4-0 and Ferencvaros 3-0.

But the forward is expected to be recalled for the mammoth match against Juventus.

They need just a point to top the group, having beaten the Serie A champions earlier in the campaign, with Messi on the scoresheet.

But Ronaldo, 35, missed out in the tie due to coronavirus, meaning he has not played against Messi, 33, since 2018.

The debate will long rage on between who is the superior talent between the iconic duo.

And Barca boss Ronald  was in no mood to settle the argument either – instead opting to admire the pair equally.
