In two scoreless matches with the selection of Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo had ants in the legs when entering the lawn of Juventus Stadium, to face Cagliari on the occasion of the 8th day of Serie A. Seventh, the Old Lady remained on a draw on the lawn of Lazio. It was time to set the record straight. The Portuguese master watchmaker waited until the 38th minute to unlock the score. Served by Alvaro Morata at the entrance to the area, he played with two Sardinian defenders before accommodating a strike with the right foot out of reach of Alessio Cragno (1-0, 38 ‘).
It took only four minutes for Cristiano Ronaldo to double the bet, a kind of reflex pigeon wing on a deflection of the head at the far post (2-0, 42nd). A pure attacking gesture that allowed him to join Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the top of the Serie A scorers standings with 8 goals for each of the two players! Opposite, deprived of Diego Godin, affected by Covid-19, and despite Giovanni Simeone and Adam Ounas, Cagliari could not return. Ragnar Klavan narrowed the gap with the head, but the centralist, Razvan Marin, was finally signaled in an offside position after viewing (69th). Matteo Tramoni remained on the bench on the Sardinian side, while Adrien Rabiot gave his place to Weston McKennie twenty minutes from the end (79th). Juve is back on the path to success and is provisionally in 2nd place, one point behind AC Milan.
