Maurizio Sarri needs to arrest his team’s recent downslide

Cristiano Ronaldo took his tally to 30 Serie A goals in 30 league outings with a brace, opening the scoring from the penalty spot after a controversial VAR check ruled that a handball was inside Lazio's penalty area.

After a first half in which Juve's Alex Sandro hit the post early on and Ciro Immobile then did so at the other end, Ronaldo put the hosts ahead with a 51st-minute penalty. As a effect, he became the first Juventus player to reach the 30-goal mark in 68 years.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 30goal in the Serie a 2019-20 and becomes the first player in the Italian league to do so. "It means nothing unless the objective is achieved", Sarri said. "There are four games left and we know that Serie A is a hard championship". "As for Paulo Dybala, we are discussing a renewal with his entourage, he is a very important player and can give us so much more in future".

Sitting in restaurants will be prohibited but takeaways and deliveries from restaurants will be allowed. Several people have been interrogated and two, imprisoned, will be tried for direct.

"Records are always important, but the team victory is more important", Ronaldo told Sky Sport.

- Cristiano Ronaldo is the 3rd gamer in Juventus history to rating 30- plus objectives in a single Serie A season with the Bianconeri, after Felice Borel (31 in 1933-34) and John Hansen (30 in 1951-52).

Immobile converted the penalty himself and Szczesny denied Lazio an equaliser when he palmed away a Sergej Milinkovic-Savic free kick.

Ronaldo clattered the crossbar with a header after a cross from Dybala, who once again discovered Strakosha in great kind to stay out another close-range effort.

Should the 35-year-old beat Immobile to the Capocannoniere (Serie A's Golden Boot), he will become the first Juventus player to win the award since Alessandro del Piero in 2007/08.

"There is a bit of regret because after the lockdown we had a lot of problems", said Inzaghi, whose side had beaten Juventus twice this season, in the reverse league fixture in Rome and the Italian Super Cup final.
