Cristiano Ronaldo is back in training with Juventus after missing the clash against Atalanta, which the Old Lady won 3-1. The forward was battling with a knee injury in recent weeks and due to this was left out of the squad that played during the weekend. The Portuguese star has teased his much-awaited return on Instagram by sharing a photo for his fans while training with the Juventus squad but manager Maurizio Sarri has played down the chances of him featuring in the Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid. Cristiano was instrumental in Juve’s last Champions League win against Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow before the international break.

‘I’m back’ the Portuguese captioned his Instagram post, stating that he is all set to face his former foes Atletico Madrid. Cristiano completed the training session with Juventus but manager Sarri still believes that his fitness needs to be evaluated before the match. 'Cristiano trained with his teammates on Sunday. It seems that his condition is improving but we still have to evaluate between today and tomorrow,' the Juventus manager said. 'The positive thing he was able to play throughout the training session with his teammates,' he added. The former Real Madrid star was substituted before the hour-mark in Juve’s clash against AC Milan, to which the forward did not take a liking to and left the stadium before the match ended.

Manager Sarri has also revealed that Dutch center-back Mattijs de Light and Italian forward Federico Bernardeschi are also a doubt for this match. The former Ajax defender has a dislocated shoulder while Bernardeschi took a hit on his chest during the weekend's clash. Juventus will face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday with a top spot in the group on the line. The first meeting between the sides ended in a 2-2 draw as the Madrid side rallied for an equal share of points after going two goals behind.
