Juventus will have to play host to Barcelona tonight without superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who can’t seem to shake off the Coronavirus despite showing no symptoms.
This will be the fourth Juve fixture that the Portuguese has been forced to miss since testing as positive for the virus as confirmed by many other outlets, with the forward unfortunately ruled out of tonight’s big game.
Juventus got two goals from Alvaro Morata to start its Champions League campaign against Dynamo Kyiv last week.
It also drew again in Serie A, finding itself fifth in the league it perennially wins after five weeks. But it’s a relative bedrock of stability next to Barcelona.
Juventus XI (4-2-3-1): W. Szczęsny, J. Cuadrado, M. Demiral, L. Bonucci, Danilo, R. Betancur, A. Rabiot, D. Kulusevski, P. Dybala, F. Chiesa, A. Morata
Barcelona XI (4-2-3-1): Neto, S. Roberto, R. Araújo, C. Lenglet, J. Alba, F. de Jong, M. Pjanić, Pedri, L. Messi, O. Dembélé, A. Griezmann
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
