Udinese defender, Williams Troost-Ekong will be prepared to stop Christiano Ronaldo when the White and Black visit the Allianz Stadium to face Juventus in tonight’s Coppa Italia fixture.
The Super Eagles defender has been a regular in Udinese’s defense this season and his experience will be highly needed to upset Juve to secure passage into the next round of the competition.
Udinese head into the game full of confidence having won their last three matches against Cagliari, Leece, and Saasuolo.
In the reverse fixture, Udinese lost 3-1 to the Biaconeri with Ronaldo finding the back of the net twice.
The Nigerian international has had to clash with Juventus on two different occasions in the Italian Serie A and each time, Troost-Ekong’s side has ended on the losing note.
Troost-Ekong will also hope to maintain his imperious defensive display, having appeared 17 times for Udinese so far.
