Cristiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi both to score in BOOSTED 15/2 shot

The potential final chapter of the long-celebrated Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo rivalry will unfold on Thursday as the two footballing icons collide in Saudi Arabia.

The exhibition match will see a Saudi Riyadh XI (11/2) take on European heavyweights PSG (3/10), and present Ronaldo a first opportunity of tasting action in his new country after inking a mega-money deal with Al Nassr in January.

The Portuguese superstar had hoped to have already made his domestic bow in the Middle East, but his long-awaited debut has been put on hold as a consequence of his two match suspension from his time at Manchester United being carried over to his new club.

Ronaldo, 5/1 to score first, is gearing-up to feature for Al Nassr this weekend, but it is on Thursday that he will take to the turf for the first time in competitive action as a select Saudi side play host to the Ligue 1 giants in an exhibition match.

The former Manchester United man has been handed the responsibility of captaining a team that will contain players from Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal, and will enable him to pit his wits against his old foe for the first time since a meeting between Barcelona and Juventus in December 2020.

The two icons shared a mesmerising rivalry during their time in Spain together, playing starring roles in numerous El Clasicos for Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, before Ronaldo departed the Bernabeu to join Italian side Juventus in 2018.

But with their last meeting coming over two years ago, Thursday’s encounter could be an historic occasion if it proves that it is the final time that the pair, who boast a remarkable 12 Balon d’Or’s between them, do battle on the hallowed turf.

To mark the possible magnitude of the game, we are offering Bet Boosts ahead of the 17:00 kick-off, including a BOOSTED 15/2 Bet Builder that includes selections for both Ronaldo and Messi to get themselves on the scoresheet.
