Cristiano Ronaldo helped Juventus grab win over Ac Milan



Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo scored as Juventus bounced back from their midweek Champions League defeat by Manchester United with a 2-0 win over 10-man AC Milan in Serie A, as Gonzalo Higuain missed a penalty before being sent off for the hosts.


Mario Mandzukic headed in the opener in the eighth minute at the San Siro on Sunday with Ronaldo adding a second on 81 minutes as Juventus maintained their six-point cushion ahead of the international break.


This win got Juventus back on track after a disappointing first defeat of the season by Manchester United following two late goals despite Ronaldo’s stunning volley.

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri said:
“Winning tonight was the only way to put aside what happened in the final five minutes of the Champions League game.

“It was important to win without conceding a goal and to regain the six-point advantage over Napoli who are having an excellent championship.”
