Sarri: "99% chance Cristiano won't face Atalanta"

Maurizio Sarri confirmed in a press conference prior to Juventus' game at Atalanta that there is a 99% chance Cristiano Ronaldo will not play. The Portuguese told his coach that he has a knock which he picked up in Portugal's game with Luxembourg.

The star was once again on everyone's lips not long ago after getting angry about getting substituted in the match with AC Milan. Everything seemed to have calmed down in Serie A, but it looks like  he will not be on the pitch at least for the next match. 

"The problem is that on Tuesday, in the meeting with Cristiano, the guy told us that, in the second match with Portugal, he picked up a knock which he had in the last few weeks. We have established a plan and the aim is for him to be fit for the Champions League match with Atletico Madrid," the coach explained. 

"There's a 99% chance he will not play tomorrow. The substitution against AC Milan? There is no problem, it's good to let players cool down," the coach added. The Portuguese is expected to be fully recovered for the European match. 

That could be bad news for Atletico Madrid, who will have one of the best players in the world in front of them. The Bianconeri are expected to beat Atalanta without too many difficulties.
