Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty to help Juventus to a 3-0 win at the home of opponents Fiorentina on Saturday. Ronaldo got the last goal at the Stadio Artemio Franchi after Rodrigo Bentancur and Giorgio Chiellini had additionally scored, and the Bianconeri broadened their lead at the highest point of the table to 11. 

Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the fifth league game consecutively to finish a 3-0 win for the unbeaten Serie A  leaders away to Fiorentina.


Fiorentina, who had drawn their past 5 Matches, were made to pay for passing up on their chances as Juventus, who have dropped just 2 points in their initial 14 Games, proceeded onward to 40 points, 11 in front of second-put Napoli. 

Midfielder Rodrigo Betancur gave Juventus the lead in the 31st moment as he played a one-two with Paulo Dybala, burst into the penalty zone and set a low shot wide of Alban Lafont. 

Marco Benassi and Vitor Hugo both missed good opportunities for Fiorentina after the re-begin and Wojciech Szczesny spared a Federico Chiesa half-volley. 

Similarly as Fiorentina compromised to level, defender Giorgio Chiellini expanded Juve's lead with a crude objective. 

Lafont inspired a hand to Chiellini's volley, the ball ricocheted and the reverse-pivot brought it into the net, avoiding two different players.
