Cristiano Ronaldo may have if only briefly, brought Lionel Messi's supporters together after receiving a straight red card in Al Nassr's cup semifinal matchup against Al Hilal.

Ronaldo was sent off in the 86th minute for roughhousing Al-Bulayhi, the defender for Al Hilal, according to Tribuna.

Goal claims that Al-Bulayhi has developed a reputation in Saudi Arabia for making fun of Messi and Ronaldo.

During a Saudi Arabia versus Argentina match, the defender became popular on social media for baiting Messi and telling him, "You won't win." 

The day after Saudi Arabia prevailed 2-1, Messi had to apologise to his adoring fans.

When Al-Bulayhi took on Ronaldo on Monday, he was once again in the act — and not for the first time. That's the reason why a lot of Messi supporters on the internet are supporting Ronaldo in spite of his unsportsmanlike actions.

Following are some of the supportive comments by Messi fans for Ronaldo.

kherleel_saleh: "Ronaldo found the right button"

Brxdeliegh: "W to Ronaldo for taking out that clown"

sivasanjays: "Messi missed Ronaldo didn't"

Dr. Samuel: "As a Messi fan I say he deserves it."

Him: "Cristiano won’t let that disrespect slide"

Homey: "Respect Cristiano for this"
