A brace for Cristiano Ronaldo and a provisional second place for Juventus. Worn by her Portuguese star, the Old Lady easily got rid of Cagliari (2-0) on Saturday night, during the 8th day of Serie A. The Bianconeri resume their march forward after having conceded a draw on the lawn of the Lazio before the truce, and put the pressure on Milan (1st), who will play in Naples on Sunday (8:45 p.m.). Bodes well three days before Ferencvaros’ reception in the Champions League, as Cagliari remains stuck in 11th place.
Juventus can blame themselves, CR7 smiles then grimaces

A double for his return to the lawn of Spezia, the only Turin goal on the lawn of Lazio a week later. And finally a new double, Saturday night, against Cagliari. Cristiano Ronaldo never ceases to panic statistics in Italy. And to wear Juve, therefore. Holder alongside Alvaro Morata, the Portuguese made the difference in four minutes before the break, in this international post-truce recovery. First of a sequence of which he has the secret, by opening a shooting angle in a pocket handkerchief to find the small opposite net (1-0, 38th). Then springing to the far post on a corner, after a deviation from Merih Demiral (2-0, 42nd).

69 goals in 60 Serie A games for Ronaldo
CR7 signed his 7th and 8th goals in five Serie A matches this season, his 68th and 69th goals in 60 games played in the Italian league. Something to knock out visitors who came to Turin with real intentions, but never able to really worry Gianluigi Buffon. The meeting could have been unblocked earlier, but Federico Bernardeschi saw his goal canceled for an offside of a few centimeters from Alvaro Morata, decidedly not clear in recent weeks in this area. The score could also have been heavier in the second half, if Demiral had not touched the bar, among others (53rd).
But the main thing is there for Juve, who will be able to settle down comfortably to watch the clash between Napoli and Milan on Sunday. A positive evening at all levels since Matthijs de Ligt was very solid for his first game of the season, while Alex Sandro also celebrated his return from injury with a few minutes of play at the end of the game. Andrea Pirlo thus finds all his weapons and must have observed, like everyone else, real progress in the game. The lights are green.
