Cristiano Ronaldo brace rescues Juventus in the fight for a top 4 finish

Juventus started the game against Udinese sitting at 5th place on the Serie A table. Juventus had to take all 3 points from the game to finish matchday 34 in a Champions League spot.


Juventus started the game in the worst possible way conceding in the 10th minute. Andrea Pirlo's men put forward an abysmal first-half display as they ended the half 1-0 down. The Bianconeri started the second half with a much more positive and effective approach but couldn't break through until the 83rd minute when talisman Cristiano Ronaldo slammed a penalty. It was the Portuguese man's rocket freekick that struck the hand of Udinese's Rodrigo De Paul eventually winning a penalty.


Cristiano Ronaldo didn't stop there as he struck again 6 minutes later to rescue the game for his side as he managed to head a cross by Adrien Rabiot goal. Ronaldo extended his lead as the Serie A top goalscorer having now scored 27 league goals. This victory takes Juventus 3rd on the table with 4 games to go. 


Juventus have home games against A.C Milan who themselves are fighting for a Champions League spot before facing champions Inter Milan. A Coppa Italia final against Atalanta is of utmost importance for Andrea Pirlo if he wants to continue managing Juventus next season. This is the first time in 9 years that Juventus have failed to win the Scudetto. The Bianconeri faced a humiliation earlier this year after being knocked out of the UCL round of 16 by Porto


A failure to qualify for the UCL and/or losing the Coppa Italia final will make matters even worst in Turin. Pirlo's position is already under serious scrutiny but if the Italian manager finishes the season 3rd on the Serie A table and wins the Coppa Italia he might just manage to earn more time at the Allianz stadium.
