Juventus said a swab test provided a negative result and Ronaldo is no longer subjected to home isolation.
Cristiano Ronaldo returned from the coronavirus after 19 days and three missed Juventus matches, the club reported.
Juventus said that the swab examination produced a negative finding, and Ronaldo is no longer subject to domestic isolation. Ronaldo tested positive for the first time after the international break with Portugal.
He missed the Juventus draws with Crotone and Hellas Verona in Series A, as well as the defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League. The five-time recipient of the Ballon d’Or was quarantined at his home in Turin.
Ronaldo could be back on Sunday for Juve’s game at Spezia in Serie A, or on Wednesday at Ferencvaros in the Champions League in Budapest.
Provided that the 2020-21 campaign was the first season for Spezia to feature in Serie A, Juventus was only approached on a few occasions prior to Sunday’s game.
These sides only fought twice in Serie B, in the 2006-07 season, where the Bianconeri were relegated to the second tier in the wake of the notorious Calciopoli scandal.
Surprisingly, Spezia, also known as Bianconeri, drew their home game and won a famous 3-2 victory over Juventus that season.
