Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi, has admitted he misses facing rival Cristiano Ronaldo, as he claims the former Real Madrid forward gave “prestige” to LaLiga.
Ronaldo left Madrid to join Serie A giants Juventus last summer, after winning three consecutive Champions League titles with the club.
“I miss Cristiano. Although it was a bit difficult to see him win trophies, he gave La Liga prestige.
“Juventus are a great candidate to win the Champions League since the arrival of Cristiano, and the match against Atleti must have given them a lot of confidence”, Messi told FM Club 947 in Argentina.
