Ronaldo Serie A's worst free kick taker

Cristiano Ronaldo has never scored a free kick for Juventus in 24 attempts, with 15 of them hitting the wall, prompting a possible rethink.

The star striker prides himself on his set play abilities, scoring some spectacular long-range strikes for Portugal and Real Madrid.

However, with his absence from the 2-1 win over Brescia on Tuesday seeing Paulo Dybala and Miralem Pjanic take over set piece duties, some are wondering whether to change the hierarchy.

Coppa: Verona out, Cittadella thriller

There were surprises in the Coppa Italia Third Round, as Hellas Verona went out to Cremonese, Empoli taken to extra time, a six-goal Carpi thriller and prolific Frosinone.

Newly-promoted Hellas Verona saw their Coppa Italia campaign grind to a halt at the first hurdle.

Alan Empereur had put the hosts in front at the Bentegodi with a powerful volley on a corner, but deep into stoppages Cremonese equalised through a Michele Castagnetti tap-in following chaotic defending.

Coppa: Gervinho brace boosts Parma

Gervinho bagged a brace as Parma got their Coppa Italia off to a great start, beating Venezia 3-1 at the Stadio Tardini.

The result sends them through to the Fourth Round, where they will face Frosinone or Monopoli.

Gervinho started the 2019-20 campaign as he ended the last, on target and running defenders ragged, as within nine minutes he had drilled in the opener.

The Ivorian veteran had several more chances before Simone Iacoponi rose to nod in a corner kick.

Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza shocked Serie B side Benevento to set up a tie with Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia third round.

Monza won a seven-goal thriller, surviving a late penalty to beat Benevento 4-3, and face Fiorentina in the next round.

Feralpisalo, Pisa, Perugia, Salernitana, Venezia, Crotone, Spezia, Sudtirol, Cremonese and Imolese, meanwhile, all secured Serie A ties.

So did Chievo, although the Flying Donkeys needed a penalty shootout to avoid a giant-killing at the hands of third-tier Ravenna.
