Juventus and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has recovered from a COVID-19 infection, the Serie A club said on Friday.

The 35-year-old has missed one Portugal match and four Juventus games, including their Champions League clash with Barcelona, since he tested positive on Oct. 13.

"Cristiano Ronaldo has undergone a test today," said Juventus in a statement.

"The result of the test was negative. The player has therefore recovered after 19 days and is no longer subject to the home isolation regime."

 

Juventus' next match is away to Spezia in Serie A on Sunday.

PSG's Neymar out until at least mid-November says Tuchel

Paris St Germain's Brazil forward Neymar will be sidelined until after the international break in mid-November following his injury against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League, the French club's coach Thomas Tuchel said on Friday.

Neymar came off with a thigh muscle problem in the 26th minute of Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Turkish side.

"Neymar should be back after the international break," Tuchel told reporters ahead of PSG's Ligue 1 game at Nantes on Saturday.

The break in domestic action runs from Nov. 11 to Nov. 17 when international matches will be played.

Brazil play World Cup qualifiers at home to Venezuela and away to Uruguay on Nov. 13 and 17 respectively.

PSG, on 18 points from eight games, top the standings on goal difference ahead of Lille.
