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 made his return to the International stage against Brazil after serving a three-month ban. The Barcelona captain scored the only goal in the match against Selecao and took his team to victory. In the match against Uruguay, Messi assisted Aguero’s goal before scoring himself in extra time to earn his side a crucial draw. This result takes Argentina’s unbeaten run to seven games. With Leo Messi hitting fine form in an Argentina shirt, his fans don’t want to miss out on a chance to troll the 32-year-old’s arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo as many fans compared their international record and called Messi the better player despite the Portuguese having more goals on the International stage.

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.
