Cristiano Ronaldo suffered a hamstring injury in Monday's Euro 2020 qualifier against Serbia, causing concerns for Juventus as a Champions League clash with Ajax looms.

The forward lined up for Portugal in Monday's qualifying clash, but was forced out of the match in the 31st minute due to the injury.

At the time, Portugal were losing 1-0 to Serbia thanks to a Dusan Tadic finish from the penalty spot. However, shortly after Ronaldo's removal, Portugal were able to tie the match on a goal from Danilo Perreira.

 

Ronaldo was instrumental in guiding Juventus past Atletico Madrid and into the Champions League quarter-finals, as the Portuguese star fired a hat-trick to help the Italian side overcome a 2-0 first leg deficit.

Now, his status for that quarter-final, a clash with Ajax, is up in the air depending on the severity of his hamstring injury.

Juventus are set to take on Ajax on April 10 in the first leg in Amsterdam before returning to Turin for the second leg six days later.
