Cristiano Ronaldo Reign Supreme Over Lionel Messi

By Olamide Oyetunji - The UEFA Champions League final Group G game between FC Barcelona and Juventus in Spain was overshadowed by the battle between two great players of the game.

Barcelona had mercurial Argentine Lionel Messi while Juventus came to the show with Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Catalan giants Barcelona ended the 2020 UEFA Champions League group stage in an embarrassing way and failure to finish in first position in the Group thanks to a 3-0 defeat to a determined Juventus at Camp Nou.

Barca were destroyed from the beginning as they looked out of sort with the ball thereby proving they are simply not good enough to win big games under the tutelage of Ronald Koeman.

The old lady from Turin scored early goals in each half with the first coming courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo who won and scored an apparent controversial penalty before Weston McKennie doubled the tally with a great volley.

Barcelona defender Clément Lenglet was caught for a handball offence in the box and Cristiano Ronaldo scored his second penalty of the night to make it 3-0 and effectively kill the game just seven minutes into the final period.

It was the Portuguese who conquered by scoring his 13th and 14th goals in 14 matches at Camp Nou in the colours of Real Madrid and now Juventus.

UEFA also showered more praises on the multiple time World Footballer of year winner with the caption by celebrating his astonishing landmark achievement.
