Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata are set to start for Juventus in this weekend's crunch tie against Lazio

The Portuguese star returned to the Juve starting XI against Hungarian side Ferencvaros in the Champions League following testing positive for Covid and was forced to missed several games.

Morata managed to bag two goals in the match in Budapest, taking the Spaniard up to six goals in seven games in all competitions so far.
