Since then Ronaldo has played nine seasons for Real Madrid and three at Juventus and breached the 20-goal mark in each of those 12 seasons.
Alvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa scored the other two goals for Juventus. Morata opened the scoring just a minute after coming off the bench. He was teed up by another substitute Federico Bernardeschi at the near post. The latter got a second assist nine minutes later when he crossed for Chiesa to score the second goal before Ronaldo settled the game with a goal in the 89th minute.
