Ronaldo gave the home side the lead after latching onto the end of a fine cross from Alex Sandro and diverting his header into the back of the net.

The Portuguese superstar was not done there, though. His efforts to keep Juventus in the race for the Scudetto are tireless, and he’s stretched their advantage over Crotone to two.
Ronaldo utilised his trademark leap and hang to fly between the Crotone centre-backs and head the ball into the back of the net, with Juventus now looking set to move up to third in the Serie A table.
