Messi And Ronaldo's Final Showdown Ends In Thrilling 5-4 Victory For PSG

PSG players won at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh in a friendly match between Al-Hilal/Al-Nassr with a score of 5:4, and this duel was probably the last clash between the players who marked the last era of football - Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The match opened in a great way after Messi scored in the third minute after an excellent play by Neymar. A calmer period of the game followed, and in the 34th minute, Ronaldo equalized after calmly taking a shot from the penalty spot.

Five minutes later, PSG was a man down after Bernat received a straight red card, but that didn't stop the French champions from taking a new lead in the 43rd minute with a goal from Marquinhos. PSG had a chance to score a third goal in stoppage time, but Neymar made a disastrous penalty and the goalkeeper had no problem taming the ball.

The penalty came just three minutes later when Ronaldo scored again, this time after hitting the post himself and after a big mistake by former team-mate Sergio Ramos.

PSG vs Al Nassr ends 5:4

Seven minutes into the game, Ramos made amends for the mistake as he scored a new lead for PSG after Mbappe's play.

However, the goal revue continued three minutes later as Jang Hyun-Soo equalized again after Martinez's cross. Ronaldo and Messi left the game half an hour before the end of the game and earned a standing ovation from the delighted crowd in the stadium in Saudi Arabia as they witnessed probably the last duel of the best footballers of all time with a few more aces of the most important sideline in the world.

The fourth goal for PSG was scored by Mbappe after another penalty, and the fifth was the work of Ekitike in the 78th minute of the match. The final 5:4 was made by Talisca in the fourth minute of stoppage time. The competition may turn out to be the final encounter between Ronaldo and Messi as one of the most iconic rivalries in sports reaches its climax.

With a result of 5-4, it can be stated with certainty that if it was the last face-off, it was one that fully honored the entertainment that both superstars have provided throughout the years.
