Roma will on Sunday, January 12, host reigning Italian champions Juventus in what is expected to be a tough Serie A battle between the two sides.
Both sides are among the top 4 teams on the standings with Roma sitting on 4th place with 35 points and are ten less than Juventus who are second.
And ahead of the encounter, Roma gaffer Paulo Fonseca has explained that he hopes to make Cristiano Ronaldo angry when he faces his wards.
Cristiano Ronaldo will go into this game against Roma with his morale boosted after scoring three goals for the Old Lady in his last game.
“I don’t know what I’ll say to him, but I hope he’s angry after the game.
“Juve are a great team, the best in Italy together with Inter, so it’ll be a tough game. Zaniolo will make it.
“It’ll be like a normal game. We’ll be playing against a great team, but for us it’ll be a normal game,'' he told reporters according to Football Italia.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Cristiano Ronaldo might not be exchanging his shirt with a Roma player this weekend when they square off with Juventus.
The 34-year-old has had a long-standing feud with the Giallorossi since his playing days with Premier League side Manchester United.
Recall when United faced the Serie A side in the 2007 Champions League quarter-finals when the English side humiliated the Italian club by 7-1 at Old Trafford and qualified on an 8-3 aggregate.
