Serie A: Ronaldo scores brace as Juve beat Crotone 3-0 to go third


Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace on Monday night as Juventus defeated Crotone 3-0 at the Turin Stadium on Monday night.

Andre Pirlo’s men were winless in their last three games in all competitions, losing to Napoli and FC Porto, after a goalless draw against league leaders Inter.

Ronaldo scored two headers late in the first half(38′, 45+1′) and unfortunately missed a couple of sitters to bag a hattrick.
