Cristiano Ronaldo was named on the substitutes’ bench for Juventus’ Serie A clash with Lazio on Saturday.
With an eye on Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Porto, who hold a 2-1 lead from the first match, Andrea Pirlo opted to rest his talisman.
Ronaldo is the leading scorer in Serie A this season with 20 goals and has netted four in his last three games.
Speaking at his pre-match media conference on Friday, Pirlo hinted that 36-year-old Ronaldo might be suffering from fatigue.
