Serie A: Ronaldo’s Brace takes Juve to second on the Table

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a four minutes brace in the first half as Serie A champions Juventus beat Cagliari and climbed to second on the table.

Ronaldo found the net in the 38th and 42nd minutes to lift Juve from eighth place, putting them a point behind leaders Milan, who have a game in hand.

The Portuguese draw level with Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic on eight goals at the top of the Serie A scorers’ list.

Juve has played a game more than all of the rest of the top five, so their occupation of second may only be temporary.

With four wins and four draws, they remain unbeaten in the league this season, alongside Milan and third-placed Sassuolo.

That includes a 3-0 over Napoli, a result that was awarded when Napoli failed to fulfil a fixture in October.
