The comparisons of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi continue to be valid on social networks. On this occasion, the ESPN account highlighted that, almost at the same time, the Argentine attacker missed a penalty against Real Madrid for the Champions League and the Portuguese star broke his scoring drought with Manchester United.

When the clock marked 4:18 pm (Peruvian time), the ‘Comandante’ scored his first goal of the year by shooting the Brighton goalkeeper. ‘CR7′ advanced to the ‘Red Devils’ who ended up winning the match 2-0 and thus rose to fourth place in the Premier League.

The Portuguese was reunited with the goal after six games and reached eight goals in this edition of the English league. The striker’s last goal, that is, had been in the last presentation of the English team in 2021, against Wolverhampton.

For its part, at 4:19 pm, PSG had the opportunity to take the lead thanks to a penalty generated by Mbappé. Immediately, Lionel Messi shot to the left of the goal, but Thibaut Courtois read the action well and saved the shot. The captain of the ‘Abiceleste’ lamented in the Parc des Princes, while the ‘Bug’ celebrated at Old Trafford.

Despite the wasted opportunity, the French team won the match after a goal from Kylian in the final minutes of the match. The squad led by Mauricio Pochettino starts with a small advantage for the second leg in Spain on March 9.
