Chrstiano Ronaldo once again proved that age has nothing to do with striking the ball into opponent’s net in a game of football.
After missing a spot kick in a Coppa Italia match against AC Milan 10 days ago, Ronaldo made no mistake in the 23rd minute and Paulo Dybala curled in a brilliant second before half-time to give the Turin side a comfortable win.
With this away win at Bologna, Juventus now have 66 points from 27 games and chasing a ninth successive title, extended their lead to four points over Lazio, who visit Atalanta on Wednesday. Inter Milan are a further five points behind in third while Bologna are 10th with 34.
Juve got the breakthrough when Stefano Denswil grabbed Matthijs de Ligt’s shirt at a corner and Ronaldo drilled home his 22nd league goal of the season from the spot.
Despite Rinaldo’s goal, Paulo Dybala stole the show of the night with a superb curly shot through his left leg that left Bologna goalkeeper helpless.
Earlier, AC Milan survived an early scare against Leece after coming back from a goal down to win by 4-1. This feat no doubt ease the pressure on their coach, Poli who continued to chase European spot next season.
Football has returned across the globe despite the earlier threat posed by the global pandemic, Covid-19.
