Lionel Messi's new wife Antonella Roccuzzo's has shared a sweet moment on her Instagram story of her superstar husband and five-year-old son Thiago enjoying a game on FIFA 18.

However, the main focus since the images were shared has inevitably been on the choice of teams for the father-son clash.

The Argentine talisman took on Thiago in what appeared to be a highly competitive encounter. and while it is clear from the photos that the match played was Real Madrid vs Barcelona, it's not clear who was who.

Perhaps Thiago's shirt is an indication as to where his allegiances lie.

However if Messi snr was in fact playing as La Blaugrana's arch-rivals that will no doubt be enough for some publications to declare him a closeted Real Madrid fan and begin speculation of a move to the Bernabeu.

The 30-year-old, assuming he was in fact Los Blancos, trailed 3-1; evidently he isn't quite as competitive for a modest game of FIFA.

Messi's Instagram story revealed that 55 minutes had been played, and that Barcelona's record goalscorer has a very nice living room.

A huge flat screen TV above a cosy fireplace certainly provides a good ambience for a casual - or intense - FIFA match.

We might never know who ended up as the winner, or even who played as who. But we have learned that Messi and his son like to play FIFA, and that one of them committed the sacrilegious act of choosing Real Madrid.
