Ronaldo tests positive again for covid19.

Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for coronavirus for the second time and will most likely miss Barcelona’s Champions League fixture.

The 35-year-old initially contracted the infection while on international duty with Portugal earlier this month. He will however miss the Old Lady’s Champions League clash against Barcelona on Wednesday, October 28. Recall that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is still infectious after nine days of his initial diagnosis. SunSport quoting Portuguese newspaper Correio de Manha claims the former Real Madrid star’s latest results returned on Thursday. Ronaldo was missing when Juventus were held to a 1-1 draw by Crotone in a Serie A clash over the weekend but defeated Dynamo Kyiv a few days later with Alvaro Morata scoring both goals. Their next outing will be against Hellas Verona at the Allianz Stadium before hosting Barca to the same venue three days later.

According to self-isolation guidelines, the Portuguese attacker would be absent for that clash, and UEFA are demanding a negative test well in advance of the game. The five-time Champions League winner is currently in Turin as he recuperates from the deadly virus. The forward shared a clip of himself keeping fit while sporting a new shaved head look. He captioned the post: “Success in life is not measured by what you achieve, but by the obstacles you overcome.” Ronaldo’s first test was confirmed on October 13 and he was left out of his country’s Nations League win over Sweden. Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has once again dished an inspiring message to his followers on social media as he makes recovery from the coronavirus. He could only watch from an isolated apartment during Portugal’s UEFA Nations League clash with Sweden on Wednesday night, October 14. The team captain tested positive for coronavirus while he was on national duty at the UEFA Nations League.

The striker was the only player in the squad that returned a positive result and he was immediately isolated.

Liverpool clinch monumental victory against Leicester City with a 3-0 victory

Published

Liverpool despite all odds came out tops in what was a totally dominating game against Leicester City.

 

The Reds showed why they are the defending champions with a superb display of attacking football even at the expense of losing six first team players.

 

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Oxlade Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and top score for the Reds this season Mo Salh were all out prior to this game, due to injury reservations.

 

But Jurgern Klopp’s side still proved what they were made of with a scoreline of 3-0 against former champions Leicester City.

 

An own goal coming from Jonny Evans at the 21st minute opened the scoring for the Reds, while later on the first half Diogo Jota doubled their lead with a sublime finish that went past Kasper Schmeicel.

 

The Foxes did try to lunge at the Reds, but the defensive manuvers brought forth by youngster Curtis Jones blocked every tactic they used.

 

Jamie Vardy was totally frustrated throughout the game, as Liverpool cut him off from all forms of creative touches, leaving the striker zoned out throughout the game.

 

The second 45 saw a penalty appeal for Liverpool when Namaplays Mendy fouled Jota in the box, that wad not given while the injury crises at Anfield increases as Naby Keita was taken off on account of a sprain.

 

Roberto Firmino also made his mark by giving Liverpool the last and winning goal at the 80th minute, converting a James Milner freekick and heading home with a goal for him, after his lack of goals this season.

 

This game makes it Liverpool’s 64th victory at Anfield- an unprecendented record for Klopp’s men, and also sees them go to second place, behind Tottenham Hotspur.

 

 

Liverpool and Leicester both have midweek games in European Competitions, and will return to the Premier League as Leicester take on Fulham while the defending champions battle against Brighton.
