Ratings of the 2 players in the last match:
Lionel Messi: 6.5/10
Lionel Messi was unsurprisingly Barcelona’s best player on the night. If Barcelona were going to get on the scoresheet, it was going to be through the Argentine. However, he was constantly frustrated by a wall of Juventus players every time he touched the ball. Every time he did get past Juventus’ defense, he was foiled by the brilliant Buffon in goal.
Cristiano Ronaldo: 8.5/10
Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t have a spectacular performance against Barcelona. The forward was often frustrated by Barcelona’s backline, but that didn’t stop him from leaving his mark on the game.
Ronaldo made a good run into the Barcelona box.
