Cristiano Ronaldo is all set to miss Juventus' Champions League clash against Barcelona as the player has tested positive for coronavirus again.

In order to play Juventus' upcoming Champions League match, the Portuguese was needed to test negative on Tuesday as protocol states that a player must have a negative test 24 hours before kick-off, Goal.com reported.

 

Juventus refused to comment but Italian media reports that Ronaldo's latest test was still positive for COVID-19 on the eve of his side's match against Barcelona.

According to Goal.com, the player has tested positive in the recent testing and will not feature in the club's match against Barcelona in the Champions League tie on Wednesday.

Previously, Ronaldo had tested positive for coronavirus on October 13 while on international duty with Portugal.
