Barcelona beats Juventus in Champions League

Barcelona defeated Juventus 2-0 in the Champions League on Thursday.

Both teams had won in their opening group stage matches and were looking to go on top in Group G by securing a win in this fixture. Ousmane Dembele scored the opening goal of the match in the 14th minute, handing Barcelona a lead. The first half did not witness more goals as both sides gave each other a tough competition.

Lionel Messi then successfully converted a penalty in the 90+1st minute to seal a 2-0 win for Barcelona. Ronaldo missed the clash because of a positive Covid-19 diagnosis. In order to play, he needed to test negative by Tuesday as per protocol states that a player must have a negative test 24 hours before kick-off.

Juventus had no shots on target unexpectedly since their first-leg UCL last-16 defeat by Ligue 1 side Lyon in February.

Previously, Ronaldo had tested positive for coronavirus on October 13 while on international duty with Portugal.
