Cristiano Ronaldo is a doubt for Juventus’ Serie A clash at Napoli on Sunday after picking up an ankle injury during the weekend’s 1-0 win at Bologna, the club announced on Wednesday.

“For CR7, check ups have been scheduled for Wednesday and tomorrow following a knock to his left ankle during the game against Bologna,” Juventus said on their website.

Champions Juve travel to second-placed Napoli 13 points clear at the top of the league, and coach Massimiliano Allegri could leave the Portuguese out of the match knowing that even a defeat would likely not cause serious harm their bid for an eighth straight title.
