In the Supercoppa Italia, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus will try to win the first trophy with the Portuguese player as their top player up front.

After a full semester playing for Juventus in all competitions, Cristiano Ronaldo will finally get his very first opportunity to compete to win his first title with the Vecchia Signora.

The match will be the Supercoppa Italia final, it will take place in Yeda’s King Abdullah Sports City stadium on Wednesday.

The rival in question will be Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan, with the manager having revealed some very interesting thoughts about Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Rossoneri have been getting ready for this challenge throughout all of last week, but there is no doubt that the absolute favorite to win the trophy is Juventus with their brightest star.

Both squads are to take this trophy very seriously since it’s the first title of 2019 that will be decided, a title that has resisted to the Vecchia Signora on four out of the last five times they have played it and one that AC Milan has already taken from Juventus back in the 2016 edition.

Both squads will inevitably use their most competitive players for this final, but there are a few names worth mentioning who have something else at stake.

Perhaps the most important figure for this final that we have to mention is Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese striker is on a mission to prove all his critics wrong and let them know that he is far from finished by winning the first of what he expects can be many trophies in Italian football.

The Portuguese forward has been very consistent throughout the season as he had been for Real Madrid, proving that any doubts generated around him were completely useless because he is still at the very top of his game.

In Serie A alone, Cristiano Ronaldo has been the top scoring leader of the competition and has brought Juventus to an even greater dominance than they already had before he arrived.

There was always a major curiosity to know if the Portugues player had what it took to dominate the famously defensive Italian Calcio, something that he immediately took care of as soon as he arrived in the country through goals, assists, and his usual spectacular style of play.

Ronaldo quickly won over his teammates at Juventus, which is why he has the full support of every single one of them to win this first trophy.

Cristiano will play as the centre-forward during this match because Mario Mandzukic is unfortunately injured, the Croatian striker will be replaced by Douglas Costa and Ronaldo will act as the goal-scorer.

But on the other side of the pitch, we are getting another great story to tell, as Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain will have his opportunity to get revenge from the squad that rejected him as soon as Cristiano Ronaldo arrived.

The Argentina international already knows what it feels like to win this trophy against Juventus, he was one of the players who defeated the Vecchia Signora in 2014’s final when he played for Napoli back in 2014 before Maurizio Sarri left to manage Chelsea and he made his move to Juventus.

Manager Gennaro Gattuso will also have the chance to play Brazilian Lucas Paqueta for the first time since he arrived from Flamengo during the winter transfer window, the youngster has been training alongside all his Rossoneri teammates and is completely ready to take on the challenge.
