Allegri banking on Ronaldo ahead of Champions League clash

Allegri banking on Ronaldo ahead of Champions League clash

20 Feb 2019, 06:30

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri believes having Cristiano Ronaldo in his team gives them an advantage in the Champions League.

The Portuguese has hit the road running in Serie A since making the shock move from Real Madrid in July after winning the Champions League thrice in a row.

The 34-year-old has scored 19 goals in 24 Serie A appearances for the Old Day.

“It is not a question of obligation. The Champions League is a goal,” Allegri said in his pre-match news conference.

“You need to play well and be lucky. Having Ronaldo is definitely an advantage. But it is the team that has to play important games.

“Ronaldo is the best in the world, and you have more chances to win it with him, but you do not win automatically.”

Juventus, who have made it to the final in two of the past four seasons, face a tricky fixture against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 clash at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday.
