Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi may not play each other again at the club level after this game. Argentine Marcelo Gallardo will serve as the Saudi League All-Stars’ coach.
Never was a suspension served.
According to the Daily Mail, the Saudi Professional League will uphold that suspension, therefore Ronaldo won’t be able to participate in the first two games.
