Raised ten minutes from the end against the Lokomotiv last Wednesday, CR7 has, this time, left the lawn to the 55th minute of play.
Maurizio Sarri chose to bring in Paulo Dybala. A paying choice, by the way, since the Argentine scored the winning goal ten minutes from the end.
This is the first time since he wears the colors of the Old Lady that Ronaldo is replaced twice in a row. Premature exits that may provoke a break between him and the staff bianconero.
As a reminder, before the match, Maurizio Sarri had suggested that his star player was not at best physically.
And Fabio Capello, the famous Italian coach, has spoken in the press to say that the old merengue is no longer able to hold 90 minutes on the ground. The facts of the day have rather proved him right.
