Across their 30 matches played the Brazilian full-back has tasted 13 victories to Ronaldo’s ten. Alves and Ronaldo last met in a Champions League round of 16 second-leg tie at the Parc des Princes in March 2018 when Los Blancos ran out 2-1 winners over Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United’s current ‘number seven’ got on the scoresheet that day and chances of them meeting again seems remote with Alves now plying his trade at Mexican outfit Pumas.

“Cristiano Ronaldo, this b*****d doesn’t let you breathe for a second,” he said. “I didn’t do too badly, but it’s difficult. He’s a scoring machine.”
