Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi will confront in the third day of the phase of groups of the World-wide of Catar with the aim to achieve a ticket that classify them to the eighth of final. Both footballers have an important weight in the fans of the FC Barcelona, being the Pole the one who represents the colours of the institution and the rosarino a symbol in the history of the club.

The two have lived important events in the previous years when being awarded like the best players of the world. 'Lewy' Did with the prize 'The Best' in 2020 and everything aimed to that would win his first 'Balloon of Gold', but the pandemia by COVID prevented that it celebrated the ceremony and remained with the empty hands. However, in 2021 it would achieve again the recognition of the FIFA although it was not him sufficient to remain first in the list of the 'Balloon of Gold'.

By his part, Leo remained in white in 2020 but to finals of 2021 would heave his seventh 'Balloon of Gold' after his good campaign with the Barça, only that this time would do it dressing the elastic of Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentinian elogió to the international with Poland during the gala when being the classified second. "I want to say him to Robert that it is an honour for me litigate with him. You deserve you your 'Balloon of Gold'. The past year all the world agreed in that you were the winner. I think that 'France Football' would have to give it to you as you deserved you. Ojalá Can award it to you and have it in your house, because you were just winner", affirmed.

Nevertheless, these words created some 'tension' between both because the '9' of the Barcelona did not think that went sincere. Like this it declared it in an interview for 'Moc Futbolu' of the television chain 'Kanal Sportowy'. "It wanted to that the statement of Messi was sincere, of a big player and no pure words. It asked a 'Balloon of Gold' for me but did not vote me for the 'The Best'. The 'The Best' is more important that the 'Balloon of Gold'", sentenced.

'Rifirrafe' Between the two?

Messi proceeded to answer him in 'TyC Sports' in the penultimate date FIFA previous to the World-wide. "The words that I said in this moment were of heart and because it felt it like this really. I said that he deserved the 'Balloon of Gold' previously, because the previous year had seemed me that it had been the best, but the year that won it I was not the best. Simply I said this. But that he take it as it want to. Each one says what want to and obviously he can express and say what want. Sincerely I do not share what he said, but neither gave him greater importance", concluded the '10' of the 'albiceleste'.

Finally, Lewandowski was asked on his words in press conference during the appointment mundialista and if they would have to 'give the hand' after the sucedido. "Why we have to say us something during the greeting? Between Messi and I is everything well, never have had any problem. Reason me pregustas something like this?", it aimed, to what the journalist answered quoting his statements. "When and where I said this? No, I do not remember to have said this. Perhaps you saw in 'Instagram' that somebody said this, but I was not", said the ex Bayern Munich.

With all this on the table, will see the faces in a party in that any one of the two can remain out of the following phase. Poland and Argentina can not especular results and will go out in search of a victory that consolidate them in eighth, with a previous full of tension in which probably it was the last World-wide of his careers. Everything will be to the expectation.
