Juventus 3-0 Crotone: Cristiano Ronaldo heads Juve to comfortable win


Juventus brushed aside Crotone to keep in touch with the Serie A title race, as two first-half headers from Cristiano Ronaldo set the tone for a comfortable win.

Crotone were the only current Serie A side Ronaldo was yet to score against, but after he missed a sitter from a Federico Chiesa cut-back early on, he made amends with a great header to convert Alex Sandro’s cross.

Aaron Ramsey then picked him out to double the lead, as Juve took charge despite looking a little off the pace in the first half.

They needed a win to get things back on track and stand any chance of catching leaders Inter, and Serie A’s bottom team were doing little to deny them it. The three points were confirmed when the ball fell to Weston McKennie after a stramash in the box, and he fired an effort high into Alex Cordaz’s net.
