Days before their football match, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were seen ‘kissing’ in Barcelona.
Italian urban artist Tvboy created a painting that was heavily influenced by Antonio De Felipe in which Messi and Ronaldo, the two main characters from the Clásico, share a passionate kiss on the streets of Barcelona.
A bizarre photo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi sharing a passionate kiss appeared on Barcelona’s Paseo de Gracia just three days before Real Madrid and Barça square off at the Santiago Bernabéu in a game that might determine the league’s champion.

Urban artist Tvboy, who is renowned for his contentious works, created the picture. The two La Liga stars can be seen kissing in this piece titled “Love is blind.”
The street art was produced by Tvboy late on Wednesday night when Wednesday turned into Thursday.
The artwork is strikingly similar to a graffiti piece by Antonio De Felipe that features the same two footballers kissing and was shown in Madrid in 2015.
