Juventus’ first game of this year was against Cagliari. Juventus have easily beaten them courtesy Ronaldo’s hattrick. This season Inter are giving a tough competition to Juventus for the Serie A title. With this win, Sarri’s team are comfortably keeping pace with Inter.
After a goalless first half at Allianz Stadium, Ronaldo showed great anticipation to beat Sebastian Walukiewicz to Ragnar Klavan’s loose pass and then finishing round Robin Olsen for the opener. He added his second from the penalty spot following Marko Rog’s foul on Paulo Dybala.
Gonzalo Higuain extended Juventus’ lead further in the 81st minute and five seconds after Cagliari restarted the match Ronaldo slotted in his third goal to score his first-ever Serie A hattrick.
This was Cristiano Ronaldo’s 36th hattrick in league matches. If scoring a hattrick is an art, then Cristiano Ronaldo is the Picasso of it. No one has scored more hattricks than him over the past 12 years.
