Market Desk (sports): It all started in the 3rd minute when Messi bagged the first of 9 goals in a massively entertaining affair in Riyadh that at times was anything but friendly.
The game had everything, a missed penalty, a sending off, VAR intervention, 9 goals and of course, 2 of the finest players of recent times as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi shared a pitch for possibly the last time.
Both men were on target tonight with Messi opening the scoring before CR7 slotted home from the spot after receiving a right hook from PSG keeper Keylor Navas.
The first half was played at a high tempo to the delight of the 68,000 fans at the King Fahd Stadium as Spaniard Bernat saw red for a professional foul in the 39th minute.
After one hour of the match, Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and Mbappe were taken off the field.
The best goal of the night came in the last minute as Brazilian Talisca drove home from the edge of the box to bring the curtain down on a hugely entertaining 90 minutes of action.
