Juve smiles with a Cristiano double

The former Madrid player has already scored 18 goals and once again surpasses Lukaku in the capocannonieri standings. La Vecchia Signora has the lead at eight points, with one game less.


Juventus smiles again after the defeats with Naples and Porto, beating Crotone 3-0 at the Allianz Stadium, after 90 minutes more complicated than the scoreboard counts. Stroppa's men, in fact, got off to a positive start and caused Buffon a couple of scares, who added his 654 presence and became the player with the most matches in the best five leagues in Europe.

Then Cristiano appeared, who once again surpassed Lukaku in the capocannonieri classification with a double, reaching 18 league goals (and 25 this year). Both goals from the Portuguese arrived with heads, from Ramsey (who also hit the crossbar) and Alex Sandro. It was the rival number 78 of the five top championships to which the ex-Madrid player scored a goal: only Ibrahimovic (79) achieved more. In the second half, Vecchia Signora managed the lead and McKennie rounded the score with a powerful shot in the heart of the area. The midfielder, with that goal, became the American with the most goals in Serie A, five, beating Michael Bradley. In the final stretch of the confrontation, Morata was seen again.

The Spaniard, despite being weakened by cytomegalovirus, gave positive signals in the quarter of an hour he played. The exatlético, replaced in the 11th starter by Kulusevski, needs to add minutes to regain his best condition. Pirlo, who made his debut for the new Fagioli jewel, is still eight points behind the Interista leadership, although with one game less. The title fight promises.
