Troost-Ekong Faces Ronaldo Test As Udinese Target Juve Scalp

Published on: 05 October 2018

William Troost Ekong and his Udinese teammates will be hoping to stop Italian champions, Juventus from recording their eighth Serie A win on the bounce when they host the Bianconeri at the Stadio Friuli in Udine on Saturday.

Troost-Ekong who has made seven starts since joining Udinese, faces his biggest test in the Serie A so far with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo in a battle of the Bianconeris.

The 25 year old Nigeria international has helped Udinese to two clean sheets so far this season.

Ronaldo missed Tuesday’s Champions League win against Young Boys through suspension after he was sent off against Valencia, but will be restored back to the starting lineup amid an a court case over an alleged rape incidence in 2009, according to Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri in a pre-match conference on Friday.
