Champions League 2018/19: Del Piero predicts club that will win trophy

Ronaldo joined Juve in a shock transfer in July following nine hugely successful seasons with Real Madrid, with whom he won four Champions League titles.

While Albiol feels Ronaldo may be contained on more occasions in Italy than he was in Spain, he is aware that slow starts are nothing new for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

"Juventus are playing to win the Champions League and there can be no half measures".

"Ronaldo has something different, we are talking about a player who has won five Ballons d'Or", Matuidi told Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It's part of a pathway and now it's Carlo who has to manage this next stage of development, aiming to get the best he can out of his entire squad to ensure they aren't short of energy at the key moments in the Champions League". Yes, we will see what happens. "I wouldn't want to finish my career with the number 20 shirt, I say everything with that", "If I wanted to change it?"

Hurricane Florence has ingredients that make experts worry
Unfortunately, the forecast is for the storm to stall out and drop a ton of rain in the Carolinas. "This one is different". North and SC residents all along the eastern Atlantic coast are evacuating ahead of an intensifying Hurricane Florence .

"It's a great challenge, but in any case we consider ourselves strong enough to go all the way this season".

"We've been joking with Paul", Matuidi said of his France team-mate.

Asensio, 22, has made 95 appearances for the current Champions League holders, scoring 21 times, and has further established himself as a regular for Madrid following the departure of the Portugal forward.

"That doesn't necessarily mean the favourites will win the trophy, but obviously we feel that we are up there and have to prove it on the pitch".

Ronaldo skipped Portugal's fixtures against Croatia and Italy over the worldwide break to help with his "adjustment" to life at Juventus. We're not competing against one player.
