Cristiano Ronaldo will not start in Juventus' Serie A match against Atalanta tomorrow and will be on the bench, which is not a common site.
The last time the Portuguese phenomenon was on the bench, excluding matches for which he was not called up, dates back to August 17, 2017, in the Spanish Supercup against Barcelona. He entered the pitch in the 58th minute and scored the decisive goal twenty minutes later, before getting sent off.
In domestic league matches, however, Ronaldo has not been on the bench of his team since April 23, 2011, when Real Madrid won 6-3 against Valencia.
