Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 50 goals in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A after a double in Juventus‘ 2-1 win over Lazio.

Juve are eight points clear of second-placed Inter Milan and need just four points to seal the Serie A title.

After a first half in which Juve’s Alex Sandro hit the post early on and Ciro Immobile then did so at the other end, Ronaldo put the hosts ahead with a 51st-minute penalty.

The spot kick was awarded when Ronaldo shot was handled by Bastos, with referee Daniele Orsato having consulted with VAR and checked the pitchside monitor.

Three minutes later Ronaldo then slotted in again, having been teed up by Paolo Dybala, for his 30th Serie A goal of the season.

And the 35-year-old Portuguese almost completed a hat-trick in the 66th minute when he headed against the bar.

Processing…
Success! You’re on the list.

Lazio subsequently reduced the deficit through a spot-kick of their own with seven minutes of normal time remaining, Immobile converting from 12 yards to go level with Ronaldo on 30 goals after being fouled by Leonardo Bonucci, but the
visitors were unable to salvage anything from the contest.
