Ronaldo to miss Barcelona clash after testing positive for COVID-19 again
As per a report published by Correio da Manhā and relayed by Marca, Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for Coronavirus for the second time and as a result, will miss the clash against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
Ronaldo had tested for the virus earlier this month during the International break in the build-up to the game against Sweden but had enough time to complete isolation and return in time to face Barcelona as part of the second matchday of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League.
Juventus have already taken on the field twice in the absence of the 35-year-old, drawing the game 1-1 against Crotone, while registering a 2-0 win against Dynamo Kiev for their Champions League opener on Tuesday.
However, the report states that the viral load shows very fewer values, and Juventus will use this as a plea to send to UEFA, in an attempt to allow a test 48 hours before the game. The game, while a clash of two European supergiants, will a lose a lot of glimmer in the absence of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. It would have been the first time that Lionel Messi and Ronaldo came across each other since May 2018.
