Sarri Leaves Out CR7 for Lecce Match

Cristiano Ronaldo will be rested for Juventus's Serie A encounter with Lecce on Saturday as head coach Maurizio Sarri weighs up the possibility of tinkering with his line-up.

Superstar forward Ronaldo has started all but one game for Juve this season and has five goals in 10 appearances across all competitions.

The Bianconeri travel to Lecce just four days on from completing a late revival against Lokomotiv Moscow, where Paulo Dybala's double earned a 2-1 win in the Champions League fixture.

And ahead of a busy run of games, Sarri is set to give Ronaldo a break as the forward has been left out of the club's squad for the upcoming match.

"With Cristiano, we speak often," he told a pre-match news conference.

"Even for him there will be need for rest. We'll see based on how he's feeling. I don't know when, we will decide.

"Right now we don't have a lot of options in order to completely rotate the squad. We'll change things with regards to the conditions of the players." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
