Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Juventis’s Cristiano Ronaldo Miss the Quarter Finals

Jude Yager, Writer

This year, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t make it to the quarterfinals in the UEFA league for the first time since 2004-2005.

In 2005, the UEFA league wasn’t a big deal until then because then both Ronaldo and Messi were now in the quarter-finals. That was the first time both of them have been in the quarter-finals. This is very rare now because both are very good players, so they are not making the quarter-finals for the first time in 17 years. Both of them have combined to win 9 times. Both players are still nearly just as good as they used to be before, so they should have made it again this year. However, Ronaldo moved from Real Madrid to Juventus and has been falling apart since then. This is a big thing for fans because it’s the first time in a long time since they haven’t made it in the quarter-finals.
