Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo reveal how Lionel Messi cost Barcelona Champions League

REAL MADRID star Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly thinks Lionel Messi cost Barcelona the chance to win the Champions League this season..

However, Barcelona will not be lying in wait in the next round after Messi toiled on a chastening night against Roma.

The Serie A giants won 3-0 last night to end Barcelona’s hopes of Champions League glory.

And Spanish outlet Don Balon say Real Madrid‘s Ronaldo blames the defeat on Messi.

The Argentina star’s performance levels have dropped off in recent months.

Messi started the season in fine form and still has 39 goals to his name so far.

Ronaldo, however, was dreadful at the beginning of the campaign but has since managed to overtake Messi on 40 strikes for the season.

And Don Balon say the Real Madrid star thinks Messi has taken his foot off the gas on purpose.

That is supposedly because he feels the Barcelona forward is saving himself for the World Cup.

This year’s showpiece in Russia is expected to be Messi’s last.

The 30-year-old has already retired from international duty once, back in 2016.

And many expect him to walk away if Argentina fail to win the World Cup this year.

Ronaldo is reportedly hoping Portugal face Messi and Co – but whether they both get the chance to face off remains to be seen.
