Messi will be in action in the UEFA Champions League but Ronaldo remains sidelined for being COVID positive. Watch Juventus vs Barcelona live in India along with other UCL matches.
Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League was to provide the match-up football fans were waiting for two years when Juventus host Barcelona at the Allianz Stadium in a repeat of the 2015 UCL final.
The two best football players in the world Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who had exchanged many a duel in various El Clasicos, were expected to face each other for the first time since 2018 when Ronaldo left Real Madrid to join Juventus.
However, it is not to be. Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed Juventus’ last two matches due to COVID-19, remains positive for the coronavirus ahead of the blockbuster UCL clash.
Messi and Barcelona, meanwhile, look back to their best after a tough pre-season but come into the UEFA Champions League match having suffered a 3-1 loss in the El Clasico against Real Madrid in La Liga.
Watch Juventus vs Barcelona on live stream and on TV in India.
