Juventus Super Star, Cristiano Ronaldo is the toast of Twitterati today, even without kicking the ball in the last over 90 hours.
Ronaldo is trending with over 90,000 comments, few hours after Barcelona lost their hopes of claiming the Spanish Supercopa to Athletico Madrid in Jeddah.
This seems like an act of revenge from fans of Cristiano Ronaldo after Barcelona fans had mocked him for losing Super Copa Italia to Lazio.
Atletico came from behind to beat Barcelona 3-2.
Barca looked on course for a Sunday showdown against Real when they led Atletico 2-1 with nine minutes left but instead, it will be a Madrid derby in Saudi Arabia to decide who lifts the trophy.
Koke opened the scoring early into the second half of the semi-final clash at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Messi found an equaliser minutes later before Antoine Griezmann added Barca’s second.
Diego Simeone’s men continued to fight back and pulled level through Alvaro Morata, who converted from the spot-kick.
And Atletico sealed a sensational 3-2 victory after Angel Correa found the back of the net with four minutes of normal time remaining.
Atletico will now face arch-rivals Real Madrid in the Super Cup final on Sunday in Jeddah.
Some fans also accused Lionel Messi and other Barcelona players of bullying 20-year-old Portuguese wonderkid, Joao Felix(praised as next-Ronaldo), after he squared up with Barcelona captain before half-time with the score 0-0.

One thing Ronaldo never does is attacking younger players. Both Messi and Suarez just attacked and pushed Joao Felix, absolutely disgusting!
