  • Neymar says Lionel Messi is his 'idol'

Having scored just 42 seconds in, it was the quickest goal scored by Juventus in Serie A play in exactly six years, with Arturo Vidal having scored 18 seconds into a November 2, 2012 match against Inter.

Ronaldo - who has scored seven goals in 10 games - is sure to start up front with Allegri still to choose between Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Douglas Costa to play alongside the Portuguese star.

Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has warned his players not to look beyond Saturday's game against Cagliari, with the prospect of a huge European clash with Manchester United looming.

"We can't afford to drop points because Inter and Napoli are behind us".

Matuidi picked up a bruise on his right hip in the 3-1 win over Cagliari, while Costa needed physiotherapy treatment on a thigh injury. Cagliari are a hard opponent and they are the team that has covered the most ground in the league and are risky in the box.

Defender Giorgio Chiellini and winger Federico Bernardeschi have both been ruled out but Sami Khedira and Mandzukic are back in the group.

Cagliari pushed forward with Artur Ionita setting up Leonardo Pavoletti but Wojciech Szczesny cleared, before Pedro broke through. Ronaldo, however, believes he is deserving of his sixth award after winning the Champions League this year, although the World Cup is often more decisive this year. "The fans should do it to our players, not others".

Cristiano Ronaldo is slowly building his reputation at Juventus.

Then Cristiano Ronaldo provided the assist for Juan Cuadrado's goal hand Max Allegri's side all three points. However, with Cristiano Ronaldo back in full flow which is coupled with a home advantage, we can expect Juventus to secure a narrow win over the Sardinians this weekend.
