Juventus wanted to rush until the last minute to try to count on Cristiano Ronaldo in his clash this Wednesday against Barcelona, but it cannot be: the Portuguese player has tested positive for coronavirus again and it will not be of the game before the hosts of Koeman. This is the third time that CR7 has tested positive.
Ronaldo gave positive two weeks ago during concentration of the Portuguese national team, just a few days after playing against Spain, and he returned to Italy to confine himself, a movement that has already caused much controversy for understanding from the transalpine country that had broken the protocol of confinement.
His absence will prevent us this Wednesday from seeing the reunion of the two leaders of world football during the last decade. We will not have a Cristiano-Messi duel. “If he plays, it will be one more concern, but it will still be a very difficult game,” said Koeman, a Barça coach, on Tuesday about the possibility of facing the Portuguese.
