Intro

Juventus have provided the latest update on the injury suffered by forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, ahead of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie with Ajax on April 10.

Ronaldo sustained an injury during Portugal’s 1-1 draw with Serbia in the Euro 2020 qualifying match on Monday night.

The 34-year-old pulled up clutching his thigh in the 30th minute, with his side trailing behind to Dusan Tadic penalty and, after receiving treatment, he eventually hobbled down the tunnel and was replaced by Pizzi.

Despite the absence of Ronaldo, Portugal managed to level the scores, after a stunning strike from Danilo Pereira, making them share the points with the visitors.
