Ronaldo undergoes tests in Portugal after suffering injury against Serbia


Cristiano Ronaldo has undergone tests in Portugal after suffering an injury in Monday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Serbia.

The forward was forced out in the 30th minute of Monday’s match after pulling up with an apparent leg injury.

Portugal went on to draw the tie 1-1 with Danilo Pereira cancelling out Dusan Tadic’s opening finish from the penalty spot.
And his assessment has proven to be correct as the tests in Portugal revealed that Ronaldo suffered a “minor injury”.

However, he is also set to undergo tests in Italy when he returns to Juventus to conclude the international break.

“After being forced to go out at the 30th minute of the first half of the match between Portugal and Serbia, valid for the Euro 2020 qualifications, Cristiano Ronaldo was subjected in Portugal to investigations that showed an apparent minor injury to the right thigh flexors,” Juventus said in a statement.

“His conditions will be monitored and will be subjected to new investigations to define the resumption of competitive activity.”

Juventus will certainly be hoping Ronaldo is cleared to return before April 10, when they will face off with Ajax in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The two clubs will collide in Amsterdam on April 10 before facing off in the second leg six days after that.
