Barring an incredibly unlikely clash in the Club World Cup in a couple of years’ time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have probably faced off for the final time in a competitive setting after the former’s move to Saudi Arabia.
However, Thursday evening brings potentially the final clash between the two stars, as Ronaldo is set to feature in an All-Star XI from the Saudi league which takes on Messi’s PSG. Ahead of the 37th – and likely final – encounter between the pair, bookies have priced up the clash from every angle.
Here’s our look at the friendly, highlighting the best boosted bets for you to consider.
Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi boosts
Ronaldo & Messi both to score –
was 7/2 -> 4/1
It’s hard to imagine these two competitors taking this game lightly, so getting 4/1 on them to each score anytime in what should be a high-scoring friendly seems like great value.
Lionel Messi to score first –
was 7/2 -> 4/1
Ronaldo will be doing a lot of heavy lifting in this clash, while Messi is likely to be on a star-studded side. It’s easy to see the French giants with their superior ability win out, while the Saudi Arabian side is a collection of players with no cohesion. Look to the Barcelona great to strike first.
PSG to win 3-1 –
was 10/1 -> 12/1
The last time these two met Ronaldo’s Juventus won 3-0 against Messi’s Barca. Don’t expect a repeat this time around, with Messi on a far stronger side. The French giants to run out 3-1 winners in this clash has been boosted to 12/1.
