Ronaldo is set to return after his slight inconvenience in the previous match


Despite getting the win, Juventus’ performance in their last Champions League match was not up to the mark. The Italian giants looked shaky at times. Their defense was easily compromised by the Lokomotiv front line. Juventus was not at their best but managed to seal a narrow win, thanks to a late goal by Douglas Costa.

But the bad form was the least of Juve’s concerns. In the final ten minutes, Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo was subbed out. Sarri confirmed that Ronaldo has been suffering from adductor fatigue.

But reports in Italy have stated that Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury is a minor one. The Portuguese is set to be back this week. De Ligt, who also missed the trip to Moscow, is also scheduled to return earlier than expected. Both of them can feature against Milan on Sunday.
