For CR7 36 is the new 16. A double midweek at the San Siro against Inter in the Cup,a goal of complex you would think it’d simple here against Roma this evening, you bet he isn’t retiring anytime soon. A simple thing as stopping the ball with your right foot, looking up and seeing a gap left by the goalie between himself and the post,passing the ball with your left foot into the gap for 1-0 is the stuff of a striker in form. His strike partner Kulusevski created the second albeit from an Own Goal.
To be fair for Roma they were in this game despite giving away those two goals. They matched the home side in terms of passing and almost in possession, 52% to Juve. They had more shots at goal than Juve 14 to just 3 although only 3 were on target. This not surprising ,they have Mkhytaryan and Dzeko to deliver and finish crosses respectively. The difference maker was the defence of Juventus who looked comfortable backed up by the experience of Chiellini and Bonucci.
