UEFA Champions League

Del Piero: Juventus Can Win The UCL Title With Ronaldo

Juventus last won the UEFA Champions League in 1996, and have since finished as runners-up on five occasions, but club legend Alessandro Del Piero believes Cristiano Ronaldo can guide them to the title.
Ronaldo has hit the ground running in his debut season in Serie A, netting 19 goals in his first 24 games in Italy's top flight following his €100 million (R1.59 billion) move from Real Madrid in July 2018.
Ronaldo's arrival in Turin is widely regarded as the final piece to the Bianconeri's Champions League puzzle, and Del Piero, who was part of the Juventus squad that last won the Champions League title, is adamant the Old Lady have a better chance of winning their second UCL title with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner in their midst.
"His signing is very good for Juventus and excellent for Italian football," the Italy legend told Sky Sport Italia.
"It will be wonderful for the whole city and for Italian football to enjoy everything he can still do.
"Juventus want to be recognised as one of the best clubs in the world and to win the Champions League again, and that is all possible with Cristiano.
"People are talking about Juventus, Turin and Italy all over the world because of Cristiano's signing. He brings his own brand and has obvious quality.
"He has hunger and desire to be the best and lead the team to victory."
Ronaldo holds the record for scoring the most goals in Champions League history (121), in addition to having the most Champions League titles next to his name (five).
The former Manchester United superstar is set for a return to Madrid when Juventus face Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their UCL round of 16 tie on Wednesday night.
Do you think Ronaldo will guide Juventus to Champions League success in his debut season in Italy? Let us know in the comments section below.
