Juventus will have to deal without Cristiano Ronaldo as he will not be taking part any in the match against Brescia.

Juventus prepare to take on Brescia later tonight in the 24th round of Serie A.

For quite a while, the Bianconeri were seated at the top of the table. But they came tumbling down after their recent back to back away defeats to Verona and Napoli.

Juve’s shortcomings allowed Inter, who were following them very closely, to grab hold of the top spot in the league table.

And now, although temporarily, Maurizio Sarri‘s men have the chance to reclaim their lead. Moreover, a victory would also help them put pressure on Inter Milan.

But the Juve fans were left devastated as soon as Maurizio Sarri announced the squad for tonight’s match. Maurizio Sarri, in a surprising turn of events, decided to leave out his star man Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to a report by Corriere della Sera, Ronaldo himself asked his boss to allow him to take a break.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been in superb form as of late. With 20 goals in 20 games, he remains a key figure in Juve’s Serie A campaign.

And regardless of the reason, Ronaldo’s absence might come back to haunt Juventus.
