The Brazilian has been in stellar form this season with PSG and is likely to be battling it out with Messi and Ronaldo for the Champions League and Ballon d'Or.

Juventus beat Cagliari on Saturday 3-1, but Pjanic was forced off with 20 minutes to go after suffering an injury.

"Juventus have more chances to win Champions League this year".

Juventus were held 1-1 by Genoa in their last home game, and Allegri added: "We need to get back to winning ways in our stadium in the league. We have a nice week ahead of us".

Massimiliano Allegri has revealed Mario Mandzukic is a doubt for Juventus' clash against Manchester United on Wednesday night.

"Douglas Costa had a muscle problem, (Miralem) Pjanic was starting to feel a bit exhausted and (Blaise) Matuidi sustained a knock", he said.

And now speaking about his competition for the coveted prize, Cristiano Ronaldo has opened up about the players who will challenge him for the Ballon d'Or.

Pedro could also play a key role, with his creativity and smart movements in the final third, although he will likely have to settle for a deeper role against the mighty Juve this weekend.

Fans will get a better idea about the efficiency of the system after a few more games, but Ronaldo's strikes from long range aren't exactly inspiring confidence.

Allegri gave Douglas Costa his second start this season up front alongside Dybala and Ronaldo, who was presented with a special jersey before the match after last week becoming the first player to break the 400-goal mark in Europe's top five leagues.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored some pretty spectacular free-kicks throughout his career.

Asked if he deserves to win the Ballon D'or again, Ronaldo stated that his goals and contribution to big games this year should earn him the coveted award.

"After the Real Madrid game [last season] I was very angry".
