Juve-Barcelona: will Ronaldo play? The situation

Juventus are waiting for the outcome of Cristiano Ronaldo’s swab test to know if he will be eligible to play against Barcelona in Champions League tomorrow.

The Portuguese star tested positive for Coronavirus while on International duty on October 13.

The following day he returned to Turin with an air ambulance and has been following the quarantine since then.

The UEFA protocol states a player is eligible to play an European game if he tests negative 24 hours before the kick-off, provided he hasn’t had symptoms for at least seven days.

Juventus delivered a detailed documentation last week that proved Ronaldo was feeling fine and was clinically Covid-free, although he was still positive.

The 35-year-old posted several social media pictures and videos over the last few days to show that he is in shape as he trained alone in his private gym at home.

The Old Lady played the last three games without their star striker and are now waiting to know the outcome of hist latest swab test.

“We must wait for the outcome [from Ronaldo’s test], I think the result will come tonight,” Pirlo said at a press conference.

“First we wait for the outcome and then we'll see. For now, everything is still on the high seas and then we’ll see.”
