UEFA were blamed on trolling Barcelona whiz Lionel Messi in their pre-match advert for Manchester City v Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

The advert indicated highlights of Real Madrid’s sensational 3-2 triumph over Man City back in September 2012 – a throbbing Champions League experience in which Cristiano Ronaldo scored the triumphant objective.

The advert demonstrates Cristiano celebrating and after that quickly slices to Messi sitting at home watching the activity from home with a group of individuals – as far as anyone knows his mates, all things considered performers – while eating Lays crisps.

It’s implied that UEFA’s expectation wasn’t to humiliate Messi, whose Barcelona side were thumped out of the Champions League by Atletico in the quarter-finals, however the certainty he was sat at home watching Ronaldo score made some individuals on Twitter wonder.


On the off chance that Messi was at home viewing the principal leg of the semi-last amongst City and Real Madrid while eating crisps with outsiders, then we feel somewhat sad for him.

The amusement was horrible – one of the most noticeably awful Champions League semi-finals in memory – and we can dare to dream the arrival leg at the Bernabeu one week from now is additionally engrossing.

Joe Hart delivered a fine spare from Pepe, Zinedine Zidane split his trousers for the second Champions League match in succession and that was about it.


The nonattendance of Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t help the exhibition and Zidane conceded after the match that the Portuguese whiz won’t not be fit for the second leg.

Karim Benzema could likewise miss the second leg, in spite of the fact that Zidane seeks both stars will be fit after Real Madrid’s greatest match of the season in this way.

“We trust that they can both be fit for the second leg, that is the ticket,” Zidane was cited as saying by Sky Sports. “Yet, we can’t say at this moment. We need to see. We need to take it step by step and perceive how they are.

“Cristiano felt something after that last instructional course. That is the reason he didn’t play. Karim, it was a tiny bit diverse. Be that as it may, toward the day’s end, little by little, he felt a tiny bit more awful in himself. We would prefer not to bet with his wellness. We know how critical both players are for us.”
