Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are set to reignite their rivalry after FC Barcelona and Juventus were drawn in the same group for this season's UEFA Champions League.

The 2020/21 UEFA Champions League has set tongues wagging after European giants Barcelona and Juventus were drawn together in Group G, reigniting the long-time rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo.
