Cristiano Ronaldo scored a double in the first half and Juventus ended a three-game winless streak by beating bottom side Crotone 3-0 to finish third in Serie A.
Ronaldo couldn’t find the back of the net in those three winless games, but normal service resumed when the prolific forward brought his season tally to 25 goals at Allianz Stadium on Monday.
The Portugal captain headed home twice in the first half and should have scored a hat-trick before half-time as Crotone was outscored by the champions.
Weston McKennie added a third in the second half as Juve moved eight points behind leader Inter with one game in hand, while Crotone looked destined for relegation after a fifth straight loss.
