Cristiano Ronaldo, who was suffering from a thigh problem, has recovered enough. The Portuguese star is ready to play for Juventus again on Wednesday for Champions League quarter-final, first leg match against Ajax. This news has been affirmed by Coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The Juventus star recovered from the injury fairly, which he suffered while he was playing for Portugal last month. Allegri reported that Cristiano has trained very well with the team and he would be starting from Wednesday’s match. However, the 34-year-old star was sidelined since he got hurt in a Euro 2020 qualifier match against Serbia on 25th March.
Since scoring a hat-trick in the 3-0 last 16-second–leg win over Atletico Madrid on 12th March, Ronaldo didn’t play for the Serie A leaders. For this reason, Ronaldo missed his team’s last four games in Serie A, during which Juventus have advanced to within a point of eight consecutive Italian titles. In fact, he has missed out the wins over Genoa, Empoli, Cagliari and AC Milan.
Allegri even affirmed that either Rodrigo Bentancur or Sami Khedira would be starting in the midfield; whereas Emre Can’s playing has been ruled out because of an ankle sprain.
Ronaldo in 26 league matches for the Serie A leaders has scored 19 goals and also added four goals in seven Champions League appearances for the club.
It was Ronaldo who pushed Juventus to this stage of the competition, with his hat-trick against Atletico obliterating a 2-0 first leg deficit against his long-time rivals. Well, in between the two legs of their Champions League quarter-final fight, Juventus would be facing SPAL in Serie A match with an opportunity to wrap up the league title.
