Juventus has booked a simple Serie A victory over Crotone after a week with two defeats: 3-0. The team of trainer Andrea Pirlo has therefore risen to third place in the Serie A, eight points behind leader Internazionale.
Last week, Juventus lost 1-0 to Napoli in the league and 2-1 out to FC Porto in the Champions League, but the Old Lady did not have to make an excessive effort against last week Crotono.
In the first half, after more than half an hour, there was a chance for Matthijs de Ligt, who is still waiting for his first goal this season, but he shot with left wide. The halftime score was then 2-0 thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo, who was accurate in the 38th minute and in injury time with powerful headers.
Ronaldo scores against the entire Serie A.
With goals against Crotone, Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in 2018, has already scored against all 19 other clubs in Serie A. Ronaldo also scored once against Juventus, as a Real Madrid player.
In the second half, Crotone, with Ajax mercenary Lisandro Magallán in defense, was not in a position to make it another match. Weston McKennie made it 3-0 for Juventus.
