Juventus are embroiled in a nerve-racking title race with surprise challengers Lazio in the Serie A. The Bianconeri are currently two points clear in the Italian top-flight, with Cristiano Ronaldo in the forefront of their action.

Italian striker Ciro Immobile leads the goalscorers chart in the Serie A, with a staggering 27 goals in 26 games for Lazio. With 21 goals to his name, Cristiano Ronaldo is his closest competitor, and the Portuguese international will look to deduce the deficit once the season resumes.

Juventus are looking to win their ninth Serie A title on the bounce. Additionally, the Bianconeri will also need a second leg masterclass to advance to the quarterfinal stage of the UEFA Champions League after losing the first leg 1-0 against Lyon.

Cristiano Ronaldo's form will be crucial for Juventus, as they aim to compete on all fronts after the season resumes. While no return date has been confirmed yet, players have been granted permission to return to individual training by the Italian government.
