Coronavirus has struck the Juventus attacker, Cristiano Ronaldo and may lead to his missing Juve’s Champions League group stage opening game away to Dynamo Kiev next Tuesday.
Portugal’s Football Federation confirmed today, October 13 that Rinaldo tested positive for Covid 19.
The 35-year-old is said to be “doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation” with no further positive tests reported in the squad ahead of Wednesday’s Uefa Nations League match against Sweden.
Ronaldo is now set to miss Juve’s Serie A trip to Crotone on Saturday and their Champions League group stage opening game away to Dynamo Kiev next Tuesday.
He is also not sure to take part in Juventus’ match with Barcelona on October 28, which was set to go head-to-head once again with his old rival Lionel Messi.
