Cristiano Ronaldo scored while Juventus was closer to a Serie A title

Ronaldo gave his stay an early lead after turning from a penalty into an attacker Paulo Dybala he doubled Juve’s lead before half-time.

The victory brings them four points at the top of the table, and the closest rival Lazio played one game less. The two teams meet in Turin on July 20th.

Juve’s victory on Monday marked a welcome return to form for a team that failed to achieve normal time in both of its matches as Italian football restarted amid the pandemic.

Juventus beat Napoli on penalties in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday, after a draw. In the semi-final second division, Juve led 0-0 against Milan, qualifying for the finals according to the rule of away goals.

“We knew that Juventus would be angry,” Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic said after the game. “It’s almost impossible for them to push three games in a row.”

Ronaldo, who has scored 26 goals in 35 games for Juve in all competitions this season, has not conceded a net in the previous four games.

He announced the penalty after VAR spotted Matthijs de Ligt, when Stefano Denswil knocked him down after a corner kick.

Although the visitors have recently been fighting for goals, the firepower is undisputed, and Dybala calmed the game with a thunderous kick.

Juventus have yet to transfer Dybal after the summer of 2022 with some of the best European clubs interested in signing strikers.

“Obviously I’m a player of this club and I’m happy to be here. People love me very much and I love people very much. I really appreciate the club and the people who are here, I have a good relationship with my president and he will come to talk at some point – or maybe not, I don’t know, ”Dybala said recently CNN Sport.

Juventus missed more chances to lead to their equalizer in the second half, which also saw left-back Danilo send a stoppage time.
