  • Champions League Cristiano Ronaldo Still Positive For Coronavirus Before Barcelona Game Says Report

According to multiple reports, Ronaldo, who was revealed to have tested positive for the coronavirus on October 13, still had not tested negative for COVID-19 as of Tuesday, ruling him out of Wednesday's much-anticipated Champions League group stage match against Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

While with Portugal, though asymptomatic, Ronaldo tested positive for COVID-19, and returned to Italy on a specially sanitised ambulance jet.

Following two positive tests among Juve staff, players at the club were placed in fiduciary isolation, where they were expected to quarantine within their own bubble.

Juventus only confirm if a player has recovered, with Sky Sport Italia and Gazzetta Dello Sport reporting that Ronaldo will miss the Barcelona game.

"Ronaldo had a test like everyone else, this evening (Tuesday) we will have the definitive result", coach Andrea Pirlo told a press conference earlier Tuesday. "For now it's all on the high seas, when the final result comes everything will be clearer".

The two global icons, both considered among the best players of all time, have not faced off since Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juve in 2018.
