Juventus achieved a marvelous win last night against their Serie A rival Bologna with a 2-0 score. Cristiano Ronaldo, after his unsuccessful stint at Coppa Italia, scored a first-half penalty for Juventus to gift the much-desired lead to the Serie A side. And with that win, Juventus now holds the top place in Serie A with a 4-point lead.
Cristiano Ronaldo also breaks the long-standing record of Rui Costa last night to become the highest Portuguese goalscorer in Serie A. Last season, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 21 goals in Serie A for Juventus. And in this season till last night, CR7 already crossed that benchmark and scored his 22nd goal.

However, Luca Toni expressed his grief over CR7’s gameplay at the Coppa Italia final a few days ago and said, “I saw the whole Juventus team in difficulty, even Cristiano Ronaldo, who looked like an average player in what was a very slow match,” and added, “You expect a big performance from him but he looked like he was experiencing physical difficulties – he couldn’t even dribble a man.”
On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister recently came in front to support his brother and issued a statement that reads, “What else can you do? It is what it is and my darling can’t work miracles alone. I can’t understand how they played like that. Anyway, keep your head up. You can’t do more, my king.”

While talking about their ongoing feud, Juventus coach Sarri recently said, “We talked before the Coppa Italia games with Milan and Napoli, and again yesterday (Saturday),” and then added, “He scored 700 goals by starting slightly wide of the centre, that’s his preference and that is normal.”
He also talked about Miralem Pjanic and said, “That’s fake news, there was no argument,” and then added, “Mire is one of the players I fielded the most this season and I have to rely on him because he has a decisive role in the three-man midfield.” It now seems that the new coach Maurizio Sarri is trying to ease his relation with players.
