Ronaldo starts on bench for crunch Juve game at Bologna


Bologna (Italy) (AFP) – Cristiano Ronaldo will start on the bench for Juventus’ final Serie A game of the season at Bologna where they need a win on Sunday to have any hope of qualifying for the Champions League.

Andrea Pirlo opted for an attacking line-up of Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata flanked by Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski.

A win against 11-placed Bologna may not be enough, with the results of AC Milan at Atalanta and Napoli at home against Hellas Verona also deciding their fate.

Juventus are currently fifth, a point behind both Milan and Napoli.

The game could be the final one for Ronaldo if Juventus fail to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 2011-2012.

The 36-year-old is the top scorer in Serie A this season with 29 goals.
