Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Juventus’ UEFA Champions League fixture against Barcelona next week after he tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time on Thursday.

The 35-year-old forward tested positive for coronavirus initially on October 13 during international duty with Portugal. He was asymptomatic then and missed a UEFA Nations League game against Sweden.

The Portuguese has been self-isolating since he tested positive and he has already missed at least two games for the Bianconeri. Along with the match against Barcelona, he will also miss this weekend’s Serie A game against Hellas Verona, according to AS.

Earlier, Calciomercato had reported that Juventus had already forwarded to UPAP – the UEFA body in charge of certifying players to play games, that the five-times Ballon d’Or winner was in good health.

Ronaldo took to social media on Wednesday and posted a video of him exercising sporting a shaved head with the caption, “Success in life is not measured by what you achieve, but by the obstacles you overcome.”
