Juventus won their home match against Bologna tonight, as they beat their opponents by 2-1 thanks to a goal from Pjanic and another one from Cristiano Ronaldo. The Italian champions are now 4 points clear at the top, but Inter still has one game in hand.

It's never an easy game for Juventus this season and this Saturday night it was not exception... The Italian champions hosted and beat Bologna by 2-1, but once again, they had to sweat and suffer before collecting the 3 points. The opening goal was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo still in the first half, but Bologna equalised shortly after and managed to hold on to the draw until the break. In the second half, the Bianconeri regained the lead a few minutes after the break following a goal from Pjanic, but then failed to score a third one and suffered a lot in the dying minutes of the clash. The visitors hit the crossbar in the very last play of the game, but fortunately for Juve, there wouldn't be any more changes in the scoreboard.

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Bologna:

Ronaldo scored first...

Before the kickoff, Cristiano Ronaldo received a commemorative shirt for having reached 700 goals in his career. The Portuguese legend celebrated the feat in the best possible way, as he scored his 701th goal in tonight's game and what a goal it was... It only took 19 minutes for CR7 to break the deadlock and it looked like he travelled back in time to beat his opponents on speed, just before striking the ball and finding the low corner of the goal. It was Ronaldo's 4th goal in the Serie A this season...

But as usual, Juventus didn't manage to get a 2-goal cushion lead and Bologna scored the equalizer in the 26th minute. "La Rossa" did score in the only shot they had on target in the first half, but that's a situation Juve could and should avoid in the future by keeping the intensity levels high, even when they score first. tonight, the visitors found the back of the net from a beautiful shot by Danilo, who aimed to the far post and gave no chances for Buffon to stop it.

The 1-1 draw was a bit penalizing for Juventus at half-time, but Sarri was confident his men would give a better answer in the second-half and he didn't change any piece in his team during the break.

Buffon saved the champions

The second-half brought us a stronger Juventus and the hosts recovered the lead with just 9 minutes played. In a very messy play inside Bologna's box, the ball ended up falling for Pjanic and the Bosnian, finding himself with space and time to prepare his strike, had no trouble in picking the low corner and put his team on the driving seat for the second time on the night. Pjanic has now scored 3 goals in the Serie A this season and became the team's second top scorer, just behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

The hosts continued to attack after scoring their second goal, but a great performance from Skorupski in Bologna's goal and also some poor finishing here and there allowed for the visitors to keep their hopes alive until the referee's final whistle. Higuaín, Ronaldo and Khedira all had several great chances to put the final nail in the coffin, but for one reason or another, it just didn't happen. In the end, Bologna got very close to score the equalizer, but Buffon made a brilliant save and secured the 3 points for the champions.

Juventus next game in the league is against Lecce on October 26 and regardless of Inter's result this Sunday, the Bianconeri will go into that game on the top of the Serie A.
