After Lionel Messi's masterclass against Uruguay, his fans brutally trolled Cristiano Ronaldo for stat padding against the so-called smaller teams at the international level. Both the players were in action during the last International break of the calendar year. The Argentine played in friendly matches against South American rivals Brazil and Uruguay. Meanwhile, Cristiano played against Lithuania and Luxembourg during Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifying campaign as they cemented their place in next year’s competition. The Portuguese scored a hat-trick against Lithuania and then managed a late goal against Luxembourg to take his tally of international goals to 99, just 10 goals behind Iranian Ali Deai. As soon as Leo Messi scored in injury time against Uruguay to earn his side a late draw, his fans took to Twitter to troll the Juventus striker. Lionel Messi Dribbles Past Six Uruguay Players During ARG vs URU International Friendly 2019, Netizens Left in Awe of Argentina Footballer's Mad Skills (Watch Video).

Both players will be returning to their respective clubs later in the week. Cristiano Ronaldo will be a doubt for Juventus’s match against Atalanta as the forward is struggling from an injury and is more likely to be on the bench. Meanwhile, Leo Messi could also be rested from Barcelona’s weekend clash against Leganes as the Catalan side have an important match, the following week in the Champions League against Dortmund with a round of 16 qualification place on the line.
