Cristiano Ronaldo’s games with Juventus are moving from ESPN to CBS in the United States starting next season.
The Italian league on Tuesday approved a contract with CBS for Serie A and Italian Cup rights worth about 64 million euros ($75 million) per year for the next three seasons.
Ronaldo has one more season remaining on his contract with Juventus, which also includes top American midfielder Weston McKennie.
Juventus arrive into the game following a close-edged defeat against Benevento in Serie A. Adolfo Gaich scored in the second half to hand a humiliating defeat to Andrea Pirlo’s men. Meanwhile, Torino failed to bag the maximum points from their clash against Sampdoria with Antonio Candreva scoring the only goal of the match.
Juventus have struggled in the league since the beginning as they languish at the third spot in the Serie A table update.
The defending champions have racked up 55 points in 27 games and trail by a massive 10 points against league leaders Inter Milan. Torino, on the other hand, fear relegation as they sit 17th in the league with 23 points after 27 games.
Juventus has 11 games to go this season. They come out of the international break still very much a team that is a giant question mark as to what we are going to get from week-to-week.
They are on the brink of falling out of the top four, with all of two points separating them from a Napoli team that they will be “welcoming” to Turin in just a couple of days.
