Will Cristiano Ronaldo play against Barcelona and Messi in the Champions League?


 Portugal and Juventus were dealt a blow when their talisman was deemed to be coronavirus positive, but how long will it affect his availability?

Cristiano Ronaldo has followed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and countless other high-profile footballers in contracting Covid-19, with doubts now cast over his availability for Juventus' upcoming game against Barcelona.


News of Ronaldo's positive coronavirus test result was confirmed on October 13 while he was away on international duty with Portugal and, while the 35-year-old displayed no symptoms, he is now ruled out of action.


Exactly how long he will be unavailable for is unclear, but the Bianconeri will be hoping that he returns sooner rather than later, with a number of crucial games coming up on the domestic and continental fronts.
