Speaking of the match between Juventus and Barcelona, Ousmane Dembele opened the scoring for Barcelona after a fine pass by Lionel Messi. Juventus constantly created openings and it was the VAR, who ruled goals by Alvaro Morata thrice during the course of 90 minutes. When Juventus were trailing 1-0 to Barca, Merih Demiral got his second yellow card in the match as the referee gave him the marching order. Messi soon made it 2-0 from the spot to seal a convincing 2-0 win against Ronaldo-less Juventus.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo missed the match after testing positive for COVID-19 – for the third time in the last couple of weeks. While the former Real Madrid forward has been training inside his house and has been quite active on social media to post his training videos and photographs, the Portuguese will only be allowed to join the squad after testing negative for the dreaded virus. Fans would be hoping that Ronaldo makes a return to the playing XI when Juventus take on Barcelona at Camp Now later in the year.
