The streak he has against Lionel Messi was mentioned by Thomas Muller, speaking to the press representatives after Bayern Munich’s qualification to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the elimination of Paris Saint-Germain. The German ace and yesterday’s MVP of the match in Bavaria spoke about the specific event and the difference that existed at a collective level when Cristiano was at Real Madrid, but admitted that it is difficult for the Argentine star to respond to the challenges that a team has like the Parisians.
“It is clear that we are among the favorites and our presence in the final is our priority“, the experienced striker first mentioned and was then asked to talk about the Messi-Ronaldo difference.
“Against Messi things are going very well at all levels in terms of results. At club level, Cristiano Ronaldo when he was at Real Madrid was a problem for us. But I have a lot of respect for Messi’s image at the World Cup».
And he continued:His individual performance at the World Cup was phenomenal. He got the whole team on him. It is not easy to play in a team like Paris Saint-Germain. It is difficult to have a good balance in such a team».
