Cristiano Ronaldo has trained with Juventus and will be evaluated ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid, Maurizio Sarri has confirmed.
The Portugal striker sat out the unconvincing 3-1 win at Atalanta over the weekend as he continues to contend with a knee injury.
However, Ronaldo is seemingly in line to feature in the Group D contest against Atleti, an opponent the former Real Madrid star has scored 25 times against in his prolific career.
“Yesterday he did the training sessions with his team-mates,” Sarri told a press conference. “He seems to be growing [stronger].
“We will evaluate it between today and tomorrow to see if we have solved it, but the fact that yesterday he did all the training with his team-mates is very positive.
“I think and hope there will be no repercussions.”
