Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were of course Messi’s star-studded colleagues, making the contest challenging for the 37-year-old Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is back in action
In a game in which Juan Bernat was sent off, he scored two goals, one of which was a penalty, whereas Lionel Messi only managed one goal for PSG.
The crowds fawned over Ronaldo and screamed enthusiastically whenever his face appeared on the big screen. This was the superstar’s successful debut game in Saudi Arabia, despite his side losing.
Both parties will benefit from this move if the striker is as content as he appears to be in Saudi Arabia, where he can enjoy being the center of attention.
