Cristiano Ronaldo continues to shine for Juventus and continues to make positive headlines even in the midst of the rape controversy. The Portuguese gave yet another match winning performance for Juventus on Saturday away from home.
Empoli got the lead early on in the game when Caputo scored a terrific goal from inside the box in the 28th minute of the game. Juventus had a number of chances to bounce back but failed to find the back of the net in the first half. Second half started with Juventus attacking quite aggresively. Pjanic came close to scoring in the 47th minute of the game as he took a shot on the goal, only to hit the crossbar.
Aggressive gameplay by Juventus paid off in the 52nd minute as Paulo Dybala won a controversial penalty. And it was the much dependable right foot of Cristiano Ronaldo which converted the penalty kick.
