Juventus players Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have both recovered from coronavirus and returned negative tests, the Serie A club have confirmed.

Rugani was among the first wave of high-profile confirmed cases in Serie A when he tested positive for Covid-19 last month.

Matuidi followed as Juve's second case, although neither player developed symptoms.

A month on, the duo have each returned two negative tests.

Juventus players out of Covid-19 isolation regime

The Bianconeri's statement read: "The players have, therefore, recovered and are no longer subjected to the home isolation regime."

The duo have not missed any action as Serie A has been suspended amid the pandemic.

Italian football studying resumption

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) is looking to resume the season in the coming months, however.

FIGC president Gabriele Gravina has praised Juve for their apparent stance against being awarded the Scudetto as they top the table at the time of the pause in play.

Maurizio Sarri's men are a point clear of second-placed Lazio with 12 matches remaining.
