Lionel Messi & Girlfriend Chill While Cristiano Ronaldo Scored Goals

"What did Lionel Messi want to say?" is one legitimate question to ask these days.

This is after Messi's girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo posted on Instagram a photo of her and her boyfriend while Real Madrid and its poster boy Cristiano Ronaldo were winning at the Super Cup, The Daily Mail said. She even wrote, "Good night" in Spanish.

The post now has nearly 57 thousand likes.

Messi is preparing at the Nou Camp, the report said, adding that he will be "desperate" for another title to add to his six at La Liga title and three at the Champions League. 

It is not the first time we have a rivalry of sorts between the two. Look at this website, which asks, "The world's greatest footballers, but who's the best?" 

The Latin Post also has its predictions for 2014/2015.

Saying Ronaldo, 29, finished the last season with 51 strikes while Messi had 41, it said the latter got a "goose egg" while the other took home two titles. 

Messi, 27, struggled with a leg injury, the report recalled, adding that the athlete put up with his disability longer than Ronaldo toward the end of the year.

But right now, it said, there's concern around Ronaldo's reported knee tendonitis, which would linger as "for the balance of his career" and affected his World Cup performance.

Messi has injury issues, too, the report said, noting the absence of "the killer instinct of past years" despite this period being supposed to be his prime. 

We'll have to wait to see about that rivalry, but The Daily Mail found common ground as Thierry Henry hailed Messi and Ronaldo as "freaks," in a cool sense of the word.

While asking rookies to emulate Thomas Muller of Germany or France's Frank Ribery, he said:

"What Ronaldo does, and Messi, they're just freaks. Don't try to copy those guys. You can copy from Ribery, you can copy from Thomas Muller."

However, when Lionel Messi took the Golden Ball as the top player in the 2014 World Cup, he seemed like he knew he "hadn't been the best in Brazil," Wales Online said, going as far as saying it could be "the beginning of the end of an era."

It seemed that many players in rival teams have figured out Messi, it said. This after a four-year streak as the best player in the world, ended by Ronaldo.

Ronaldo had two goals for Real Madrid in the Super Cup final, where it beat Sevilla, putting him within contention of another Ballon D'Or for 2014, but the report noted that his age and the abundance of young talents--Gareth Bale, Neymar and James Rodriguez as top contenders, makes the year "the most-open for years."

For this other aspect of the soccer world, we once again have to wait.
