CRISTIANO Ronaldo is still determined to face Lionel Messi in their Champions league showdown next Wednesday despite testing positive for coronavirus on two occasions.

Ronaldo should have tested negative seven days before the game in order to play, according to UEFA protocol.

But Ronaldo’s team, Juventus, have argued against UEFA, saying that his test demonstrated a very low viral load and if he tests positive on Friday he should be allowed to play in the match.

Messi and Ronaldo have long competed for the title of world’s best player but have not played in the same Champions League match since the Real Madrid-Barcelona final in 2012.

When Ronaldo recieved his second positive test the football star did not panic but posted a dinner snap on Instagram:
