Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala confirmed Serie Astarters for Juventus against Bologna


Ronaldo and Dybala started on either side of Mario Manzukic in the Serie A champions recent 2-0 win over Frosinone.

And Allegri confirmed the duo will have another chance to impress together against Bologna on Wednesday evening.

"Ronaldo will play tomorrow, he is fit and needs to play. He won’t be eligible against Young Boys so he will play tomorrow," he said in the pre-match press conference.

"Dybala will play as well, he only gets good ratings when he scores. I think he played well against Frosinone. He needs regular game time and tomorrow he will play.

"Perin will make his debut tomorrow. I have a doubt about Alex Sandro, if he doesn’t play I’ll play Cancelo on the left and Cuadrado on the right unless I play Bernardeschi on the left.

"Matuidi will return, then I need to choose one between Pjanic and Emre Can."

On learning about gaining the vote of five-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi, the Italian remained diplomatic in his response.

"Messi? I didn't know he voted for me in FIFA The Best. I am happy, I can't do anything else.

"Deschamps deserve to win and I want to congratulate Marotta who won an important award."
