This is the much-awaited game at Allianz Stadium after May 2011 match when Messi and Ronaldo have played against each other in the league.
“He had a swab today [Tuesday] like everyone else. We have to wait for the outcome of the test. I think it will come in the evening,” head coach Andrea Pirlo said according to AS.
“We have to wait for the result, then we’ll see [if he will play]. For now, everything is still uncertain. We hope to be able to evaluate him even if it’s not easy after 15 days of inactivity.”
