Ronaldo Scores As Juve Maintain Serie A Lead



Juventus has continued to maintain their lead on the table of Italian Serie A with seven points ahead second place, Lazio.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 23rd goal of the season as Juventus while hosting Lecce in the first match after the restart of the league.

The visitors had Fabio Lucioni sent off for a foul in the first half before Paulo Dybala struck from outside the box just after the break.

Ronaldo drove home a powerful penalty after being brought down before setting up substitute Gonzalo Higuain.

Defender Matthijs de Ligt then headed in a late third for the dominant hosts.

Ronaldo, who also scored a penalty in the 2-0 win at Bologna on Monday, has now scored 23 goals in 24 league appearances this season.

The win means Juventus extend their advantage over title rivals Lazio, who have a game in hand and could reduce the deficit back to four points if they beat Fiorentina on Saturday.
