Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Juventus’ Champions League game against Barcelona next week after returning another positive coronavirus test.
The Portuguese superstar picked up the virus last week. He’s incapacitated him in the Nations League for Portugal, forced him into quarantine and heightened fears that he would miss the club’s big clash against the La Liga side.
But the 35-year-old has tested positive again, according to the Spanish outlet Marca and ruled out a delicious reunion with his old rival Lionel Messi.

A report by Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha claims that Ronaldo’s test showed a very low viral load despite a positive return, with Juventus not entirely giving up hope of their talisman in the game.
It is alleged that the club will seek permission from UEFA to test Ronaldo 48 hours before the game on October 28th. It is up to the European Football Association to decide whether or not such a request is admissible.
Ronaldo and Messi, who have been fighting for the honor of the world’s best player for over a decade, have not faced each other in the Champions League since the semi-final between Real Madrid and Barcelona in the 2011/12 season.
The former Real Madrid and Manchester United star has shown pictures of himself staying fit at home as he battles to fight the virus after his first test on international service.

Ronaldo was completely unable to play for Juventus or use the club’s facilities on the training ground. He’s been busy at his home gym making sure he stays fit for the upcoming games but has to stay away for a while after his last setback.
He appeared in high spirits when he shared a clip on his Instagram page in which he danced and sang while riding the gym bike and showing off a striking new buzzcut.
Ronaldo will part with family members while he is at home in quarantine, while the rest of his loved ones will be on a different floor. The striker can maintain his fitness level through an outdoor gym.

Italy’s Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora had alleged Ronaldo may have violated coronavirus protocols when he was flying back to Italy from Portugal.
However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner quickly quashed that claim after switching to Instagram Live, claiming he had followed all required procedures.
The 35-year-old said on Instagram: “I’m always at home, now I take a sunbath, also to let the days go by. I respect the protocol, I didn’t break it, as was said: it’s a lie.
