Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri confirmed on Friday Cristiano Ronaldo is an injury doubt for the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Ajax on April 10.

Ronaldo, a five-time European Cup winner, left the field with a thigh problem captaining Portugal in Monday’s draw against Serbia.

“He’s already started to move but he won’t return to training until he feels fit. There is a risk he’ll miss the first leg against Ajax,” Allegri said.

“We have to be careful because we’re in a tricky period of the season. Its better he misses one match and comes back when he’s 100 percent so there’s no risk of a repeat injury. It’s better to miss one match than two months,” Allegri added.
