Juventus as the defending champions of Italian Serie A and the team that has the material of star players, of course lined up to be one of the candidates for the European Champions League this season, or at least reach the final round. So, what if Juventus face Real Madrid again in the top match? Cristiano Ronaldo claims to be very ready.
As is known, Juventus has managed to secure tickets to the knockout stages of the European Champions League this season with its status as champions of Group D. Meanwhile, Real Madrid have also received tickets to the round of 16 of the Champions League. However, they only qualified as runners-up, because only collected 11 points, 5 points behind Paris Saint-Germain who became the top of Group A.
With the status of both teams, Juventus also have the potential to face Los Blancos in two round of 16 big matches. The Bianconneri also has the potential to meet one of Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, Lyon and Tottenham. However, Cristiano Ronaldo who is now the main star of Juventus seems reluctant to deal with his former team in that round.
Mega star Portugal is happier if faced with the team made by Zinedine Zidane in the final.
“Real are an amazing team, but if you ask me, I’d rather face them later. In the finals? I will register now to meet them in the final,” told him to Sky Sport Italia.
In the final group phase match, Juventus faced Bayer Leverkusen at the Bay Arena. Cristiano Ronaldo himself played since the first minute and he appeared excellent and even scored one goal. The Portuguese player also insisted he was now free from injury problems that had made him pushed aside.
“My physical problems have passed, and now I feel fine. It’s been four weeks since I played with a little pain, but now I’m fine. The team played well, we played very well in the second half, we were the first in the group, things improved for me too, I’m more confident. I personally hope that the situation remains like this, “he continued.
