The Portuguese legend has pulled off such a significant performance this season that the visiting coach feels intimidated, saying ‘he can make a difference’ on the Wednesday clash.

Mircea Lucescu,

 Dynamo Kiev's coach, believes

Cristiano

’s charismatic character has the ability to bring the best out of the team.

The 35-year-old Juve forward has scored nine goals in seven competitions this season in Serie A and

Champions League

with a forthcoming battle against the Ukrainian side this Wednesday.

CR7 was rested on the encounter against Benevento on Saturday but he is going to make an appearance in Wednesday’s clash.

Juventus

and Barcelona secured a spot for themselves in the next round, Lucescu, on the other hand, is still fighting to reserve a place in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Dynamo Kiev

’ coach advised his squad to be careful about the Juve star.

"

Ronaldo has charisma, he brings the whole team to life, he is one of those players who can make a difference,

" Lucescu said.

"

He is important for what he does on the pitch and for the confidence he gives to everyone

."

Despite Juventus’s inconsistent play this season, the visiting coach is certain that

Pirlo

’s side is one of the best teams.

"

Juventus are a great team, they can field two different equally strong teams,

" he added.

"

They have changed some things and they are perfecting some others, but I'm sure that it will enhance the talent of their players

.

"

I think that Juve can win the Champions League, they have great players. Certainly, the absence of the fans also makes everything more difficult for everyone

.

"

Italian football is and will continue to be one of the most important in the world
