Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo has confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo suffered an ankle injury in the 1-1 draw with Lazio on Sunday.

The Portugal star, who gave his side the lead in the first half at Stadio Olimpico,picked up a knock in a clash with Lazio midfielderLuisAlberto and was replaced by Paulo Dybala in the 76th minute of the game.

Pirlo could not give any details on the severity of the injurybut told DAZN:"Ronaldo is a key player not only for us but for all the teams he has played for. Unfortunatelyhe had an ankle problemand was forced to leave the field."

The reigning Italian champions held on to their lead until the deep into second half stoppage time, whenJoaquin Correa laid it off for substitute FelipeCaicedo to smash into the bottom corner and earn a point for the home side.

Pirlo was happy with his side's performance overall, but warned that such slip ups could cost them the Serie A title.

"We had a good match, they had never shot us on goal, there were no signs, but we have to take care of every little detail," the former midfielder said. "We didn't manage the ball in the last 10 seconds. We are satisfied with the game, unfortunately not with the result.

"The head comes first of all, today all the boys have given their best, shown that they can play these matches.if you go on to the pitch with a negative attitude, you have bad performances.

"We were missing the malice to achieve the decisive results.When they do it like they did today, they see the solutions.

"We are always working to improve, we put new ideas into every game. Today Federico Chiesa was unable to play, Giorgio Chiellini is injured and Alex Sandro and Matthijs de Ligt are out,but we can’t use these as excuses.”
