Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will be Cristiano Ronaldo’s opponent in his first game in Saudi Arabia, and there’s a possibility he’ll play against Lionel Messi again.
PSG announced on Monday that it will compete in a friendly on Jan. 19 in Riyadh against a side made up of players from Al Nassr, Ronaldo’s new club, and Al Hilal, the current Asian Champions League champion.
Ronaldo should have to wait till Al-league Nassr’s match against Al Ettifaq on January 22 to make his official debut.
The 37-year-old great must complete the two-match punishment that the English Football Association imposed on him in November before the World Cup in accordance with international soccer regulations. Following a game against Everton in April of last year, Ronaldo swatted a fan’s cellphone out of his hand.
During a two-day break in the area, PSG, which is owned by Qatar, is traveling to Saudi Arabia. While there, they will also stop in Doha to do promotional activities with the club’s Qatari sponsors.
