Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has decided to bring Cristiano Ronaldo for today’s trip to Sardinia and the Portuguese superstar will be accompanied by eight youngsters.
The Old Lady secured their ninth consecutive Scudetto on Sunday and were expected to make big changes ahead of the match against Cagliari tonight.
Reports in Italy claimed Ronaldo, who is currently three goals behind Lazio striker Ciro Immobile in the Capocannoniere battle, could be rested and stay in Turin this week.
The 35-year-old superstar has been picked for the last away game in Serie A 2019-20 but the list of absentees comes as no surprise.
With a Champions League match against Olympique Lyonnais early next month and having played every three days since the resumption, the Bianconeri have decided to give several players a breather.
Danilo, Giorgio Chiellini, Matthijs de Ligt, Mattia De Sciglio, Sami Khedira, Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala will not travel to Casteddu.
Juventus squad against Cagliari: Szczesny, Pinsoglio, Buffon; Alex Sandro, Bonucci, Rugani, Demiral, Coccolo, Wesley, Frabotta; Pjanic, Matuidi, Bentancur, Muratore, Peeters; Ronaldo, Cuadrado, Higuain, Bernardeschi, Olivieri, Vrioni, Zanimacchia
