Lionel Messi hopes to see Cristiano Ronaldo in much awaited Juve-Barca clash

Lionel Messi however expects that Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit to participate in next week’s Champions League match between Barcelona and Juventus in spite of a positive coronavirus test.

The 35-year-old missed Juve’s two matches against Crotone and Dynamo Kyiv as he was forced to withdraw from the squad and stand alone after he initially tested positive for Covid-19 on October 13 while on international duty.

Next Wednesday Juve will host Barca and, in line with Uefa protocols, the asymptomatic Ronaldo had another test today but still has the virus a week out from the match.

His participation in the much-anticipated clash between two of the biggest football players in the world is therefore in doubt, although Juventus hopes to be given a special dispensation to test Ronaldo 48 hours before the match.

“Obviously, when Cristiano played for Real Madrid the games were special,” Messi told in an interview, according to DailyStar, ahead of this weekend’s Clasico. “Matches against them always are special, but with Cristiano on the pitch they took on a particular significance.”

“Our teams were also very demanding: Real Madrid and Barcelona, the two strongest clubs in the world. Competing as equals for so many years is something that will remain forever. The duel between me and Cristiano was very good on a personal level and I think people enjoyed it. The fans of Real, Barca, but in general all football fans, have seen a great show. We hope to give them even more emotions on Wednesday.”
