Ronaldo back on top of scoring chart

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Juventus headed for a 3-0 home win over Crotone in Serie A on Monday, the victory lifting the champion to third in the table.

Juve were a bit slow to start, but their ever-reliable talisman came to meet a cross from Alex Sandro in the 38th minute to put Andrea Pirlo’s side in front.

Ronaldo looked hungry for more and another header in the first half stoppage doubled the lead, bringing Portugal back to the top of the league scoreboard out of 18, one ahead of Romelu Lukaku of Inter Milan.

The results: Series A: Juventus 3 (Ronaldo 38, 45 + 1, Mckennie 66) bt Crotone 0.

The league: Osasuna 0 lost to Sevilla 2 (Carlos 19, De Jong 49)

Premier League: Brighton 1 (Veltman 55) lost to Crystal Palace 2 (Mateta 28, Benteke 90 + 5).
