Turin, Italy (AP) – At the interval of three minutes of the second half, Cristiano Ronaldo ensured that Juventus would not lose to Lazio for the third time this season.
Ronaldo’s double strike in a 2–1 win on Monday meant Juventus could clinch the ninth straight Serie A title this week.
With four rounds remaining, Juventus scored eight points ahead of Inter Milan, nine points ahead of Arritta and 11 in front of Lazio, which trailed Bienkeri by just one point before the break for the Coronovirus epidemic.
Juventus earned revenge in Serie A and the Italian Super Cup after losing twice to Lazio in December.
Ronaldo converted a penalty after VAR determined a handball, then finished a counterattack after a generous pass from Paulo Diana.
Ciro Immobel pulled one back for Lazio with a penalty in the 83rd.
Ronaldo and Immobel top the Italian league scoring charts with 30.
In addition, Ronaldo became the first player in the Premier League to score at least 50 goals, the Spanish Liga and Serie A. His 51 runs in Italy were 84 in the Premier League, and 311 in La Liga.
In the first half, both sides won; A dominant volley from Juve’s Alex Sandro, and a long-range try from Immobile.
Ronaldo also led the crossbar after being re-established by Dybala.
