Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick taking against Cagliari sparked a reaction from fans

"When there are free kicks from far away, Ronaldo can kick them but we've decided that Dybala and Pjanic will take the set pieces close to the area". Saturday's victory over Cagliari takes them to ten wins out of eleven.

Centre-back Giorgio Chiellini and winger Federico Bernardeschi continued their recovery regimes after injury, and the pair should be available for selection against United.

Can Rolando Maran mastermind an upset? Cagliari are a hard opponent and they are the team that has covered the most ground in the league and are unsafe in the box. Ronaldo, however, believes he is deserving of his sixth award after winning the Champions League this year, although the World Cup is often more decisive this year.

Pedro could also play a key role, with his creativity and smart movements in the final third, although he will likely have to settle for a deeper role against the mighty Juve this weekend.

Juventus are unbeaten in their last 16 matches against Cagliari in all competitions.

Cristiano Ronaldo is slowly building his reputation at Juventus.

"Everything is okay, I will make sure to be ready for the next game", he said.

However, Filip Bradaric scored an own goal just 125 seconds later and Juan Cuadrado diffused rising tension late on by sweeping home Cristiano Ronaldo's cross.

He has netted seven in 10 league appearances, including a brace in his last match against Empoli. "The fans should do it to our players, not others". "When I say quality I don't just say creative players - Chiellini and Bonucci, it is absolutely attractive to see".
