Rested Cristiano Ronaldo Ready To Face Lyon

Posted by

Sarri’s men lost the first leg in France 1-0 before football was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic and coach Sarri Ronaldo, left out of Saturday’s domestic season finale against Roma, has not played since 29 July. The optimistic manager who is very confident of a positive result on Friday’s clash was quoted saying: “Ronaldo is training in the right manner,” said Sarri. “On Wednesday he scored an excellent goal in training. He played many games in a short time, he rested a little and now he has trained with intensity and strength.”

Juventus manager, Sarri whose side just clinched their 9th successive Siria A title is hoping to have Paulo Dybala available. The Argentina striker has scored 17 goals in all competitions this season but missed the last two league games because of a thigh injury. As the French leagues did not resume this summer, Friday’s game will only be Lyon’s second since March. They lost the League Cup final on penalties to Paris St-Germain last Friday and Lyon’s boss Rudi Garcia said: “Juve is a great team and it is demonstrated by the fact that even this year they won the Scudetto.
