MILAN (AP) – Cristiano Ronaldo continued his goal streak with two more goals as Juventus won 2-0 against Cagliari to take second Serie A on Saturday

Juventus have moved one point below league leaders AC Milan, who travels to Naples on Sunday Sassuolo, third place, is one point further ahead of his game against Hellas Verona

Atalanta and Lazio are among four clubs with 14 points, three less than Milan Lazio won 2-0 at Crotone earlier on Saturday and Atalanta were surprisingly held 0-0 at Spezia

Juventus attacked from the start and Federico Bernardeschi believed he gave his side an early lead but that was ruled out as Álvaro Morata was offside in the preparation

The hosts finally made the pressure count seven minutes before the interval when Morata found Ronaldo, who cut to the left and shot into the lower corner

Ronaldo doubled his score four minutes later after a corner kick was thrown at him by Merih Demiral

Juventus had the opportunity to extend their advantage in the second half, especially when Demiral left the crossbar

Ciro Immobile marked his recovery from the coronavirus with the goal of sending Lazio on the way to victory in the last place of Crotona

Joaquín Correa scored the second for seventh place Lazio Crotone remained at the bottom with just two points from his first eight games

Lazio’s game was at risk of being postponed after torrential downpours and flash flooding in the area but it continued despite the barely rolling ball and splashing water from the waterlogged pitch as the players were running

It was Immobile’s first game in nearly three weeks after being banned from COVID-19, which also barred him from Italy’s three matches

Immobile had scored in his three previous matches before his layoff and he opened the scoring in the 21st minute with a diving header in the lower left corner following a superb cross from Marco Parolo

Correa doubled Lazio’s lead in the 58th with a shot from a tight angle after dribbling past Crotone defender Pedro Pereira and almost crossing the sideline

Spezia had won only one of his last five games, but almost took a surprise lead in the opening two minutes when Diego Farias’s curling effort hit the far post

The visitors came close to winning the game late but Spezia goalkeeper Ivan Provedel made a superb double save to first turn down Mario Pašalić and then Robin Gosens
