Former Barcelona team-mates, Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho were back on the field together on Tuesday, as the former Barcelona superstars were seen sharing a warm embrace Parc des Princes before Paris Saint-Germain's clash with RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

Messi and Ronaldinho played together at Barcelona between 2004 to 2008, with the duo forming a telepathic understanding on the pitch and helping the club win two LaLiga titles and the 2006 Champions League honour.

Messi who sealed a move to PSG in the summer was seen exchanging a warm embrace with the Brazilian before the game against Leipzig and the duo were also seen having a chat on the touchline.

The Argentinian had not enjoyed the best of starts to life at the French capital, but he showed why he is considered as the best in business as he scored a brace to give his side a narrow 3-2 win over the Bundesliga side.

Ronaldinho who also played for PSG before moving to Barcelona, was without doubt the best player in the world between 2004 to 2006, winning the Ballon d'Or award in 2005. It was the Brazilian's arrival at the Nou Camp that rejuvenated the Catalan giants as he played a major part in the revival of the club.
