Ronaldo again received a positive result after a test carried out Wednesday, Sky Sport Italia and Gazzetta Dello Sport reported

Cristiano Ronaldo has again tested positive for coronavirus as Juventus prepare for next week's Champions League clash against Barcelona, according to reports in Italy Thursday.

Ronaldo is currently isolating at his home in Turin after testing positive for Covid-19 on October 13 while with the Portuguese national team for Nations League matches.

The 35-year old again received a positive result after a test carried out Wednesday, Sky Sport Italia and Gazzetta Dello Sport reported.

The Portuguese forward could still be available for Sunday's Serie A game against Hellas Verona, and the clash against great rival Lionel Messi's Barca on October 28.

Under Uefa rules the five-time Ballon d'Or winner needs to test negative 24 hours before the Barca game in Turin to be included in the squad.

Ronaldo, who has no symptoms of the virus, has continued training at home posting a video on social media of himself training in his high-tech gym, sporting a new shaved head look.

Thursday, the unsmiling player posted another photo of himself on social media, sitting at a table before eating, with the caption: "Thursday style!" 

The entire Juve team are in isolation after US midfielder's Weston McKennie's positive test on October 14.

Despite Ronaldo's absence Juve won their Champions League opener 2-0 at Dynamo Kiev with Spaniard Alvaro Morata scoring both goals.

Juve are second in Group G behind Barca who beat Hungarian minnows Ferencvaros 5-1.
