Cristiano Ronaldo is to return for Juventus game in the Serie A league at Udinese on Saturday, reports BBC Sports.
The Portugal forward was suspended during his first Champions League match for Juventus, when he got a red card for a “violent misconduct” against Valencia’s Jeison Murrilo. This cost him to miss Tuesday’s Champions League win over Young Boys
Ronaldo, 33 has recently faced a rape allegation after Kathryn Mayorga accused the Portuguese of sexual assault in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.
The Juventus forward has strongly called the claims “fake news” and then issued a further statement on social media in which he strenuously denied the allegations and called rape “an abominable crime”.
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri said he was “ready to return to action”.
“I’ve known Cristiano for three months now and for over 15 years of his career he has shown to be a great professional both on and off the pitch,” he added.
“He has broad shoulders, so much so that he can be completely focused on the match.”
The Italian champions signed Ronaldo from Real Madrid for £99.2m in July.
Ronaldo’s lawyers have said they may bring a legal action against the German magazine, Der Spiegel, which first reported Ms Mayorga’s claims.
