Cristiano Ronaldo tests negative for coronavirus

Cristiano Ronaldo could be in line to make his Juventus return this weekend, after testing negative for coronavirus.

The 35-year-old has been self-isolating since he returned a positive test for the Covid-19 virus on October 13, whilst on international duty.

Since then, he has missed four games for the Italian giants – with two of those coming in the Champions League.

After scoring three goals in his first two league games this season, Ronaldo was eagerly anticipating a reunion with old rivals Barcelona.

Juventus were drawn against Barcelona, but the former Real Madrid star was forced to miss the first tie, with Lionel Messi’s side winning 2-0 in Turin.

However, a negative result now means he should be available for the return fixture in December and could even come into Andrea Pirlo’s XI for this weekend’s clash with Spezia.
