Ronaldo granted Juventus rest as he’s not in squad to face Genoa



Cristiano Ronaldo is not even in the Juventus squad travelling to Genoa for Sunday’s Serie A match.

The Bianconeri are 18 points clear at the top of the Serie A table and qualified for the Champions League quarter-final thanks to their 3-0 victory over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday evening.

Ronaldo bagged a hat-trick and has earned himself some rest, as CR7 is not even in the travelling party going to Marassi.

Mario Mandzukic, who limped off during the Champions League success, does make the trip.

Douglas Costa, Mattia De Sciglio, Juan Cuadrado, Andrea Barzagli and Sami Khedira are still out injured.

Juventus squad for Genoa:

Szczesny, Chiellini, Caceres, Pjanic, Dybala, Alex Sandro, Matuidi, Mandzukic, Kean, Bonucci, Cancelo, Pinsoglio, Perin, Emre Can, Rugani, Bentancur, Bernardeschi, Spinazzola, Nicolussi Caviglia, Moreno
