Cristiano Ronaldo on the spotlight

The Serie A made its return this past weekend and Juventus first fixture was against Bologna, at the Renato Dall'Ara. The Italian champions didn't drop any points in this trip and beat their opponents with 2 goals without response.

Juventus are back to winning ways after visiting and beating Bologna 2-0 in their away fixture for the Serie A, this Monday night. Cristiano Ronaldo was also able to return to the scoring sheet, after striking the opener early in the first and thanks to a penalty-kick earned by De Ligt. The 3 points were secured when Paulo Dybala made it 2-0 for the visitors, as he scored one of his best individual goals of the season for the Bianconeri. For those who visited elarabcasino and had a bet placed on Juve prior to this match, they must have felt very comfortable with the scoreline at half-time. The match was also marked by De Sciglio's injury deep in the second half and by the red card shown to Danilo, who had precisely came on for the Italian defender. The pressure will now be on Lazio's shoulders, who will be tested next Wednesday in a tough trip to Bergamo to play Atalanta.

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Bologna:

Juventus throws the first punch...

Juventus threw the first punch in the title fight following the Corona pandemic, as the Vecchia Signora got the job done in Bologna, beating the locals by 2-0. Ronaldo and Dybala scored the visitors' goals, which allowed the Turin side to temporarily go 4 points above second-placed Lazio and inevitably put some additional pressure on their rivals. The Roman side still has one game in hand, but their next fixture will take them to Atalanta's home in Bergamo, one of the most in-form teams in Italy in the current days...

Sarri decided to switch things up ahead of tonight's clash, starting with Szczesny in the goalkeeper spot. In defense, the Italian manager was forced to replace an injured Alex Sandro on the left side and brought in De Sciglio to fill his place. The other members next to him remained being De Ligt, Bonucci and Cuadrado. In midfield, one strategical change from Sarri by taking off Matuidi and bringing in Rabiot. The french midfielder played next to Pjanic and Bentancur, but they didn't really manage to convince Sarri and two of them ended up being replaced later in the second half. Finally and in the attack, Sarri replaced Douglas Costa with Bernardeschi, who partnered up with Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo.

This was a particularly important game for Ronaldo, who was going through a goal drought beyond 120 days already. Obviously, most of this period was due to the Corona-virus stoppage, but still, it must have been a feeling Ronaldo was not happy with... Tonight, the Portuguese legend brought the drought to an end and hopefully this will boost his confidence for the rest of the season...

Ronaldo and Dybala led the way...

The first goal of tonight's match happened after a quite unnecessary foul from Stefano Denswil, who decided to pull De Ligt's shirt when an inoffensive cross had just been cleared away from Bologna's box. The referee ended up pointing to the spot after consulting the VAR and that meant Cristiano Ronaldo was about to get a golden chance to return to scoring ways. The former Real Madrid superstar didn't disappoint and with his usual cool, he beat Bologna's Polish goalkeeper to make it 1-0 to Juventus.

Thirteen minutes later, in the 36th minute of the first half, Juventus extended their lead to 2 goals following a spectacular play between Bernardeschi and Paulo Dybala. The Italian midfielder combined with his teammate via a first-touch backheel pass and the former Palermo player showed some quick thinking by cutting inside and immediately striking the ball into the top corner. Terrific goal from the 26-year old, who just scored his 8th Serie A goal this season.

With a 2-goal lead, the Italian champions controlled the game as they love doing it and managed to keep their goal clean until the final whistle. These were 3 important points for the Vecchia Signora, but they still 11 finals left before the end of the league.
