Ronaldo: Juventus will qualify

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo expects winless Juventus to qualify from their Champions League group.

The Old Lady are bottom of their section after collecting just three points from four games, but the Portuguese wizard insists the Old Lady are still alive.

“Juventus are a very strong team,” the former Manchester United man noted. “They are certainly competitive and I think they’ll qualify in second from the group.”

The Turin giants will entertain Copenhagen and travel to Galatasaray in their last two games.

Ronaldo was again on target last night as his eighth Champions League goal of the season helped Madrid collect a 2-2 draw at Juve.

“I am happy with my eight goals, but will try to score more,” he added. “We are almost through, we need another point but it is almost done and we are happy.

“In the first we didn’t play very well, we were very defensive. Then the Coach told us we had to attack, we had to use the flanks and that is what we did and it worked.”
