Ronaldo will play against Lazio: Allegri

Football News: Juventus has confirmed that despite fitness problems, they will put their star man on their first home match of the new Serie A season.

Ronaldo will start the match for the Old Lady’s.

Juventus manager Allegri has confirmed that the Portuguese attacker will start for the Italian champions on their first home match of the season.

In their previous match against Chievo, Ronaldo made his debut for them where the Italian international Federico Bernardeschi scored a late winner for them to earn the three points for them.

Former Madrid man was blank on his maiden debut for Juventus, the team looked more threatening when he shifted from his
centrall role to left position and the introduction of Mandzukic as a second-half substitute.

Despite some fitness issues that he is facing now, Allegri confirms that he will play against Lazio in their next match.

The Juventus manager voiced: "Cristiano is set to play tomorrow,"

"It's important to bear in mind, however, that our forwards are the players who've had the least amount of pre-season training, so they need to be managed with care.

"Cristiano is always striving for more. He's highly competitive in everything he does. He has built his own success over the years through hard work and sacrifice. He's a role model for many of the other guys and he raises our overall quality.

"There will be better link-up play between our midfielders and forwards, which will undoubtedly benefit Cristiano.

"I believe that Cristiano's goal at Allianz Stadium in last season's Champions League has helped to build a strong rapport and significant mutual respect between himself and the fans.

I think it had an influence in his choice to join Juventus."
