Messi's fellow Argentine, Paulo Dybala, will likely start for Juventus to try to outplay his national team captain.

Sky Sports confirmed that despite having been allowed by UEFA to re-test just 24 hours before the game, Ronaldo was unable to produce a negative result. The player has remained asymptomatic ever since he picked up the infection following back-to-back Nations League games against Spain and France earlier this month.

Tonight's Champions League encounter will be the fourth match that Ronaldo has missed for the Italian club. He also skipped last week's opening victory against Dynamo Kiev along with two Serie A games. Juventus was held to two draws in both the Serie A matches.

In a press conference, Pirlo said, "We will count on the players we have available. Barcelona are strong and have great champions, we must play a great game. The players will certainly have to sacrifice themselves and play a great match. I'll go ahead with the back four because I only have four defenders. So, we'll go on like this."

Juventus vs Barcelona will be played at the Allianz Stadium at 8:45pm CET.
