Massimiliano Allegri believes that Cristiano Ronaldo should win the Ballon d’Or and also backed the Portuguese to open his scoring on Sunday against Sassuolo.

Allegri is backing 5 time Ballon d’Or winner to take the award yet again this year after his performances for European Champions Real Madrid last season.

And since arriving from Real Madrid this summer, Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to find the net, but Allegri is confident he will break the ice on Sunday when Juventus host Sassuolo.

“Cristiano worked well and I think tomorrow he will break his duck,” Allegri said at a press conference.

“I expect nothing more or less than what he did in the first three games, but I believe tomorrow he’ll find the back of the net and break the ice.

“With no offence to Luka Modric, I’d give the Ballon d’Or to Ronaldo for what he did last season. I think he deserves it.”
