Juventus 2-1 Parma: Ronaldo scores 11 goals in 7 games as leaders go 4 pts clear

A typically inspirational two-goal turn from Cristiano Ronaldo saw Juventus open up a four-point gap to Inter at the top of Serie A.

Cristiano Ronaldo fired reigning Serie A champions Juventus four points clear at the top of the table with a brace in a 2-1 win at home to Parma.

Juve were given an unexpected boost in the title race earlier on Sunday when Inter were held 1-1 at Lecce, and Ronaldo ensured his side took full advantage.

Maurizio Sarri's men were not wholly convincing but, in the Portuguese, had the game's outstanding player, who opened the scoring late in the first half.

Andreas Cornelius outjumped Ronaldo for an unlikely equaliser, yet revenge was swift for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, a second goal soon sealing victory for the leaders. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
