Reports: Ronaldo at risk for Lazio game

Cristiano Ronaldo is not 100 per cent fit and could be left out when Juventus host Lazio tonight, with concerns for the Champions League showdown with FC Porto.

It kicks off at 19.45 GMT, you can follow the build-up and action as it happens from today’s three Serie A games on the LIVEBLOG.

Gianluca Frabotta is suspended, with Giorgio Chiellini and Paulo Dybala injured.

Rodrigo Bentancur tested positive for COVID-19, so the need to have more tests as per protocol delayed the release of the full squad list until this afternoon.

Alvaro Morata is still not at 100 per cent after struggling with a viral infection, although he scored off the bench midweek to beat Spezia.

Juan Cuadrado returns after a lay-off, but the big news is that Cristiano Ronaldo is not included in the group.

Reports emerged in Turin this afternoon that the Ballon d’Or winner had a slight issue and would not be risked just days before the Champions League decider with FC Porto.

Lazio have named their squad too and are missing Manuel Lazzari, Luiz Felipe and Stefan Radu.

Lazio squad: G Pereira, Reina, Strakosha; Acerbi, Hoedt, Musacchio, Patric; Akpa Akpro, Cataldi, Escalante, Fares, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic, Marusic, Milinkovic-Savic, Parolo, A Pereira, Shehu; Caicedo, Correa, Immobile, Muriqi
