Reports in Spain have claimed that Lionel Messi and Barcelona spent their Tuesday night in their hotel laughing at Cristiano Ronaldo.
While some would think it would be a possible performance, it wasn’t with the forward actually impressing during the game.
Though, there was one moment in the game which reportedly had Messi and his Barcelona teammates laughing to themselves.
That moment came in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration for his two goals, which were described as over the top.
Diario Gol claims that the squad were laughing after the Portugese player celebrated ‘as though he had scored in the Champions League final’.
Instead, in reality, he was scoring against Cypriot side APOEL and that had the Barcelona player giggling.
Barcelona are set to face Juventus in their Champions League clash this evening and will be hoping to do what they couldn’t last season.
The Italian giants proved too much for Barcelona after they overcome Paris Saint Germain in dramatic fashion.
Now, the club are looking for a different outcome when the face off this evening.
Safe to say, we will have to keep a close eye on Messi and his teammates’ celebration after these reports from Spain.
Cristiano Ronaldo will certainly be keeping a close eye on them.

Ronaldo ended a myth during Real Madrid’s rout of APOEL
While Lionel Messi and Real Madrid may be laughing about Ronaldo’s celebration, they will not be laughing about his performance.
Having scored two goals, the player broke, even more, records in the Champions League.
The superstar also impressed generally during the game despite the opponents and even ended a big myth relating to him.
