Champions League: Juventus will look to contain Ronaldo – Chiellini
Juventus defender, Giorgio Chiellini has said that his side will only try to “contain” Cristiano Ronaldo when they host Real Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday.
Ronaldo heads into the first leg of the quarter final full of confidence after scoring in Madrid’s victory over PSG in the round of 16.
The 33-year-old forward has scored 21 goals in all competitions in 2018.
Chiellini admits Juventus have a special plan to deal with him.
Chiellini said, “Lots of teams have conceded goals to Cristiano.
“He is someone who can make a difference and we’ll look to contain him, even if we know that Real Madrid have many other dangerous players.”
Real Madrid beat Juventus 4-1 in the Champions League final last year but Chiellini has denied that his team are looking for payback.
“We’re not out for revenge against Real Madrid,” he insisted.
“We also have positive memories against the top Champions League teams.
“If you want to go all the way in this competition, you have to come up against opposition of this calibre,” he added.
