He was asked to put out his thoughts on who between the two is the real GOAT and there he was with a heart-warming reply. “GOAT? I’m not going into that. We won and I’m very happy,” he said. He also defended Messi when asked if he was over. Ronaldo said that the Argentine is still the same. Barcelona had won the first leg of the Champions League by 2-0 at the Allianz Training centre. Back then CR7 was not a part of the game as he was down with COVID-19. In the second leg, Ronaldo scored a brace by converting a couple of penalties into goals. The third goal was added by Winston McKennie.

Barcelona also scripted an unwanted record with the loss as they had already conceded a couple of goals right within the first 20 minutes of the match. This has happened for the Catalan Giants for the very first time.
