Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo could, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, be rested when the Old Lady travel to Cagliari.
The Bianconeri could decide to rest Ronaldo with Champions League around the corner, despite the Portuguese fighting Ciro Immobile for the Capocannoniere title in Serie A.
Immobile has scored three more than the 35-year-old and the newspaper claims he could end up staying in Turin when the rest of the team travel to Sardinia for Wednesday’s match.
Juventus wrapped up their ninth consecutive Scudetto with a 2-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday and now aim to turn around the 1-0 defeat to Olympique Lyonnais in the last 16 of the Champions League.
Further updates on Ronaldo’s proposed absence is expected in the next hours.
