Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has been suffering from bad luck since the start of the Italian league this season and opened his scoring career after scoring two goals, leading Juventus to a 2-1 victory at home to Sassuolo in the fourth stage.
The rest of the games, which took place today in the same phase, resulted in the victory of Genoa at home to Bologna 1 – zero, while Roma draws with Chievo 2-2, and Odense with Torino 1-1.
Juventus, who have won the title for the last seven seasons, have lifted their lead to 12 points, three points clear of their nearest rivals Napoli, continuing their perfect start to the tournament after winning their fourth successive win.
On the other hand, Sassuolo, who lost his first loss of the season at seven points in third place temporarily until the rest of the stage matches.
Ronaldo waited until the 50th minute of the game to score his first official goal in his career with the “old lady”, having failed to score in the first three games of Juventus in the competition this season.
Ronaldo continued his brilliance in the first game of the tournament, which resumed its activity after last week’s suspension due to international agenda matches, adding to the second goal for the hosts.
Khouma El Hadji Babacar scores Sassuolo’s only goal in the first minute of the second half.
Juventus were forced to play with 10 men in the last minute of the match after Brazilian midfielder Douglas Costa received the red card in the final minute of time lost due to his injury to Sassuolo’s Federico de Francesco.
For their part, Rome missed a win in hand, and drew a 2-2 home draw with Chievo earlier in the day.
The draw came after a 2-1 loss to AC Milan last season and a draw with Atalanta in the previous round after the team started their campaign this season by beating Torino 1-0 in the first round.
Roma moved up to five points in seventh place, while Chievo remained one point behind the penalty.
The court of the Italian Football Federation has punished Chievo with a three-point deduction from his league record, as well as a fine of 200,000 euros and a three-month ban on club president Luca Camaldi.
Chievo has been charged with manipulating the club’s annual budget for the Serie A in the last three seasons.
