CR7 scored twice in the first half to give the Serie A champions a deserved victory over a Cagliari side that paid a high price for only thinking about defending a goalless stalemate. Cristiano broke the deadlock with a screamer from the edge of the box and made it two shortly after steering inside the net a corner kick from the right.
