The game will see him come face-to-face against long-term rival, Lionel Messi, with PSG currently on a tour of the Middle East.

This could be the last time that the two superstars, who have won the Ballon d’Or 12 times between them, face each other.

Ronaldo and Messi enjoyed a great rivalry during their time in Spain together, going up against each other in numerous El Clasicos for Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
