Cristaino Ronaldo netted twice in quick succession to keep Juventus on track for their ninth consecutive Serie A title.  Juventus seem to be on brink of 9th successive Scudetto with a 2-1 over Lazio. Ronaldo set another record of becoming the fastest player to score 50 goals in Serie- A.

Juventus FC have established an 8 point lead over Inter Milan and a 9 point lead over Atlanta. Ronaldo scored twice quickly within the gap of three into the second Half. Ronaldo took his Serie-A goal tally to 30 goals for the season.

Cristiano opened the scoring at 51st  minute with a beautifully placed penalty against Lazio’s keeper Strakosha. Ronaldo’s second goal came just after three minutes his penalty , from a wall orchestrated link up play between him and Dybala. Nevertheless Ronaldo kept looking for his third goal but was denied by the woodwork , as his header hit the top of the crossbar from a Dybala cross later on in the game.

 However Juve contested a late penalty , when Leonardo Bonucci fouled Lazio’s Immobile inside his own penalty area. Ciro Immobile converted from the spot taking his tally to 30 goals for the season. Wojciech Szczesny produced a Man of the match save to keep out Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s free-kick. Dybala and Rabiot both put in some great performances to their team’s title hopes afloat. Both Ronaldo and Immobile are in contention for Serie – A as well as European golden boot award.
