More to Juventus than Ronaldo

Seeing the scoresheet of Juventus-Cagliari, one would think the Bianconeri have once again managed to take home the three points only thanks to the usual, superb Cristiano Ronaldo.

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.
