'The Russian Ronaldo' - Juventus Academy Moscow & the hunt for the new Cristiano (VIDEO)
Five-time world's best player Cristiano Ronaldo will lead 'The Old Lady of Turin' into Moscow for the Group D match at Lokomotiv Arena on Wednesday. The Italian side snatched a 2-1 victory at home two weeks ago and will be weary of a Lokomotiv team that led for 77 minutes at Allianz Arena.
Ronaldo has fond memories of Moscow; he clinched his maiden Champions League title with Manchester United at Luzhniki Stadium in 2008, and the Portugal ace twice scored the winner on international duty in the same stadium in games at the 2017 Confederations Cup, and then at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Now in the black and white of Juventus he returns to the city, where at the Juventus Academy Moscow they hope to find the 'next Ronaldo' in Russia.
