Messi v. Ronaldo is ON! Inter Miami confirm preseason tour stops in Saudi Arabia against Neymar’s Al-Hilal and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr before MLS season begins in late February

After months and months of speculation, a match will take place in the Middle East that could serve as a coda in the rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Inter Miami have confirmed that Messi and the rest of his squad will travel to Saudi Arabia to play Cristiano Ronaldo's club Al Nassr.

Before that, they kick off the match against Al-Hilal, the club his friend Neymar plays for.

While the Brazilian may still be recovering from a torn ACL by then, it is the potential of one final match between Messi and CR7 that could capture the world's attention.

Both matches will take place at the Kingdom Arena in the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh.
