UCL: Juventus can rely on Ronaldo, says vice president Nedved

Juventus vice president Pavel Nedved believes Cristiano Ronaldo can comfortably lead the side's attack, now that he has regained full fitness.

Juventus is paired against Lyon in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

Nedved hopes Ronaldo can make the difference beginning from the game against Lyon.

"He is a champion and when he's needed, he's always there," Nedved said of Ronaldo after Monday's draw. "He had some physical problems and is now back in good form.

"It's nice to see Cristiano, Dybala and Higuain all playing together, and they can all be on the pitch at once if all three run and sacrifice themselves like they did yesterday against Udinese.

"The coach naturally evaluates the state of form of each one when he makes his choices and, at the moment, they are all in form and you can see it."

Nedved believes the draw was a positive one for Juve, although he acknowledges Sarri's side must not allow their form to drop in the run-up to the Lyon tie, with the first leg taking place in France on February 26.
