Will the reunion between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi next Wednesday take place? Portuguese superstar Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for Covid-19 again, Italian media indicate Thursday, but there is still a chance that he will participate in the Champions League clash against Lionel Messi’s FC Barcelona on Wednesday .
The 35-year-old Portuguese got a new positive test after the one announced on October 13, while he was in selection, assure Sky Sport Italia and the Gazzetta dello Sport. “CR7”, who does not present symptoms, lives in isolation in his Turin home from where he posts images on social networks showing him keeping in shape.
This positive test does not threaten, for the moment, the presence of CR7 for the highly anticipated C1 summit against Lionel Messi, in a duel with 11 Golden Balls. Indeed, UEFA’s medical protocol stipulates that a player must present a negative result on his last screening test, carried out “one or two days” before the match, in the case of the home team, in order to be able to be aligned. Thus, Cristiano Ronaldo will be available if he tests negative on Monday or Tuesday.
Before challenging Barça, Juventus receives Hellas Verona on Sunday in the Championship. The team coached by Andrea Pirlo made its debut in C1 by winning against the Ukrainians Dynamo Kiev (2-0) on Tuesday, thanks to a brace from Alvaro Morata, while FC Barcelona got rid of the Hungarian novices of Ferencvaros (5-1).
