On Thursday, there were 21 shots on goal, nine goals, a red card for Juan Bernat, and Neymar missed a penalty. The exhibition was held at King Fahd International Stadium.

Ronaldo‘s first game for his new club Al Nassr was delayed because of a domestic ban from his time at Manchester United. His first game since moving to Saudi Arabia was for a team that included players from both Al Nassr and Al Hilal.

It set up a meeting with longtime rival and fellow multiple Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi. It was their first meeting on the field of any kind since Juventus beat Barcelona 3-0 in the Champions League group stage in 2020.

Messi won their 37th game against Ronaldo, but Ronaldo scored more goals than the 2022 World Cup winner.

Neymar, Mbappe, and Messi all helped Messi score the game’s first goal in the first three minutes. Ronaldo tied the score with a penalty kick after Keylor Navas hit him in the face.

Bernat was given a straight red card for a last-man challenge just inside the other team’s half. However, Marquinhos quickly put PSG back in front after Mbappe set him up.

Neymar missed a chance to add to PSG’s lead when his weak penalty shot was saved, and it cost them when Ronaldo scored with a header right before halftime.

After Mbappe set up Sergio Ramos’s goal, which was cancelled out by Jang Hyun-header soo’s less than three minutes later, PSG still couldn’t beat their opponents.

Mbappe finished off a strong performance by scoring his own goal from the penalty spot at the hour mark. He, Messi, Neymar, and Ronaldo were then taken off.

After that, the game slowed down, but it was still fun until the end. Hugo Ekitike had put PSG out of reach, but Anderson Talisca scored a late goal to bring it back, but the Riyadh All-Stars couldn’t tie it for the fourth time.
