The highly anticipated matchup of Cristiano Ronaldo against Lionel Messi in their side’s Group G fixture is unlikely to happen as Ronaldo has reportedly not recovered from the coronavirus in time.

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.


Alvaro Morata replaced Ronaldo against Dynamo Kyiv last week and scored twice in a 2-0 win. Barcelona got off to a good start by beating Ferencvaros 5-1 but coach Ronald Koeman is under pressure again after the team lost at home to Real Madrid in the Spanish league Saturday.
