Juventus verified that Cristiano Ronaldo has completely recovered from COVID-19 after getting a negative test result.

Ronaldo’s negative status clears him to end his quarantine time and makes him to return to the club’s training facility and join his teammates in training ahead of Sunday’s Serie A game against Spezia.
Whether or not the Portuguese forward will be picked immediately in Andrea Pirlo’s match-day squad remains to be seen. Ronaldo played the first two league games of the season in Juve, scoring three times in 180 minutes of action, before being found positive for COVID-19 while on international duty.
He subsequently missed two league games and two Champions League games, including Wednesday’s highly-anticipated clash with Lionel Messi and Barcelona, over the last two weeks.
Juventus currently sit fifth in the Serie A table with nine points from their first five games. The nine-time defending champions trail leaders AC Milan by four points.
