This was Ronaldo's first goal through a free-kick for Juventus, he had attempted 43 times but could not find the back of the net.

"We took the lead right away and then scored again. Maybe we thought it was going to be easy but the penalty got us nervous and made us lose control of the game," said Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri.

"We had a confusing phase at the start of the second half and then, when the two teams were tired, our quality came out."

After scoring a free-kick, Ronaldo was relieved by it.

"I needed to score from a free-kick to get my confidence back," he said.

Paulo Dybala opened the score for the team by scoring his trademark goal.
