Cristiano Ronaldo's got a fan in Gianluigi Buffon!

Marcus Rashford Man Utd Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid's top scorer, is to sit out his side's La Liga trip to Las Palmas on Saturday in order to be in prime shape for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg at Juventus, Spanish media reported on Thursday.

"He keeps improving his performance and adapting as an athlete, it's incredible", Diario AS quotes Buffon as saying.

Ronaldo also scored twice for Portugal in a comeback win against Egypt during the worldwide break, and will be looking to add more when Madrid travel to Las Palmas.

"In the recent years he has been very smart because he has changed the way he has played, he uses less energy than before because he plays further forward in attack but he is an incredibly surgical player. He is also lethal, everything he does is at 100 percent and in front of the goal he is an assassin". "I'm happy, I'm calm but there is nothing I can say that will dispel the rumours".

Markram hits second century of series for Proteas
Dismissing a local batsman generally has two contrasting outcomes; joy to the bowling side and disappointment to the crowd. Just after passing 150, his biggest Test score to date, Markram cut Cummins to Mitchell Marsh at gully to go for 152.

Buffon, who was speaking in a Facebook Live question and answer session, was asked about former team-mates Filippo Inzaghi, David Trezeguet and Alessandro Del Piero. "Inzaghi and Trezeguet, unlike Del Piero, were real penalty area assassins". Even just training with them allowed me to know what champions they were.

Spanish daily Marca said Ronaldo has agreed with coach Zinedine Zidane to remain in Madrid while his team mates make the two-and-a-half hour plane journey to the Canary Islands.

"I can mention players I haven't played with - as a trequartista [advanced playmaker] [Zinedine] Zidane was the absolute best".
