The Bianconeri have left out Ronaldo from their 23-man squad for their next match in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

Andrea Pirlo has rested Cristiano Ronaldo for Juventus’ quarter-final tie against Serie B side SPAL in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night.

The Juventus manager has replaced Ronaldo with 18-year-old striker Marco Da Graca, who has never played for the first-team. Dejan Kulusevski and Alvaro Morata are set to start together upfront instead. Rodrigo Bentancur has also been rested after having stitches put on his foot after the Bologna game on Sunday.

Pirlo has already confirmed Gianluigi Buffon will start in goal, while Matthijs de Ligt and Merih Demiral will start in defense.
