Cristiano Ronaldo Still Positive with Coronavirus: Skips the Challenge with Messi

Champions League Cristiano Ronaldo Still Positive For Coronavirus Say Reports

The 35-year-old initially contracted the infection while on worldwide duty with Portugal earlier this month.

Ronaldo and Messi, who have battled for the honour of 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.

Earlier, Calciomercato had reported that Juventus had already forwarded to UPAP - the UEFA body in charge of certifying players to play games, that the five-times Ballon d'Or victor was in good health.

Juventus won their UEFA Champions League opener 2-0 at Dynamo Kyiv on Tuesday owing to new-signing Alvaro Morata's brace.

Their next outing will be against Hellas Verona at the Allianz Stadium before hosting Barca to the same venue three days later.

UEFA's protocol state that all players must produce a negative COVID-19 test a week before their next match in the Champions League.

Ronaldo is now isolating at his home in Turin after testing positive for Covid-19 on October 13 while with the Portuguese national team for Nations League matches.

One of the main subplots of El Clasico in the modern era has been the individual rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He could only watch from an isolated apartment during Portugal's UEFA Nations League clash with Sweden on Wednesday night, October 14.

CR7 had had the response of the positive test for Covid-19 during his stay in Portugal, in retreat with his own national team.
