Cristiano Ronaldo looks to win a treble with Juventus this season
Cristiano Ronaldo is all geared up for the re-start of Juventus' Serie A campaign as the Bianconeri face Bologna at Renato Dall'Ara in an away fixture on the 23rd of June. Juventus are currently at the top of the league table and will hope to finish the season at the same position.
The Binaconeri have managed to accumulate 63 points in their 26 games so far and have a narrow lead of one point over Lazio who are currently at the second spot. Both sides have been excellent this season and Lazio especially will not be willing to go down easily as Juventus chase their 9th league in a row.
Cristiano Ronaldo might complete his first treble with Juventus this year. Juventus beat AC Milan 1-1 on the away goal basis in the semi-final of the Coppa Italia recently. The Bianconeri will now face Napoli in the Final as they look to add more silverware to their cabinet.
The Portuguese talisman could also lift the UEFA Champions League title. However, Juventus will have to fight it out with Lyon, who won the first leg by a single goal margin. The exact date of the second-leg will be decided in a high-level UEFA meeting later this monthPublished 16 Jun 2020, 20:46 IST
