Though it is just a club friendly, no one wants to miss Cristiano Ronaldo facing Lionel Messi. Check out here how many people will attend the PSG vs. Riyadh All-Star XI game.
In what would be a somewhat pointless game if it weren’t for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Paris Saint-Germain take on Riyadh All Stars in a friendly as part of their winter tour.
PSG may not arrive in high spirits, having been shocked by Rennes last time out, but we are still talking about one of the most powerful teams in Europe. Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Messi are expected to take the field.
On the other hand, it will be an interesting team for the Riyadh All-Star XI consisting of Al Hilal and Al-Nassr players, coached by Argentine manager Marcelo Gallardo. While the audience is likely to be large, many wonder how many of them will actually attend the game.

A full house is expected at the King Fahd International Stadium for this game, with nearly 68,000 spectators watching Messi against Ronaldo for the first time in a while. The Portuguese star will not only face his longtime rival, but also play for the first time since joining Al Nassr.
While there’s not much at stake for Paris Saint-Germain in this game, it will probably have a great impact in their finances. According to L’Equipe, PSG would receive nearly €10 million for taking on the Riyadh All Stars.
