It is extremely difficult for Cristiano Ronaldo to play for Juventus against Barcelona after his diagnosis of COVID-19, as the UEFA protocol could ban it.
Although, the Ballon d’Or winner tested positive for Coronavirus yesterday on international duty with Portugal.
The UEFA protocol demands that until a Champions League or Europa League match can be permitted to participate a player be COVID-negative for at least seven days.
Given Ronaldo tested positive on October 13 and Juve’s Barcelona clash is set for October 28, it would be incredibly difficult for him to recover in time.
“Participants from Group 1 or Group 2 who have verified confirmation that they have now recovered from the virus are invited to submit documentation of this to the UPAP, including the date of diagnosis of the virus, complete relevant medical history and any other medical documents in this context e.g. SARS-CoV-2-RNA test or any other laboratory tests,” reads the protocol published by UEFA.
“This must be provided at least one week before the team’s next UEFA Match.”
The upcoming matches against Crotone and Dynamo Kyiv will definitely be missed by CR7.
