Cristiano Ronaldo keeps scoring as Juventus soar 11 points clear

Cristiano Ronaldo headed in his 18th league goal this season as Juventus bounced back from last week's stalemate to soar to an 11-point lead in Serie A on Sunday with a 3-0 win at Sassuolo.

Juve might have lacked a creative presence in and around the penalty area with Dybala being dropped but Khedira's all-action display ensured the Argentine playmaker was not missed.

"We need to continue in this vein right until the end as good performances in Serie A will give us confidence for the Champions League".

Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli's sloppy clearance was punished after 23 minutes when Ronaldo pounced on the loose ball and fired a powerful shot at goal which was parried, only for Sami Khedira to knock in the rebound.

With the game on the rails toward a relatively easy victory, Germany's Emre Can once again put Juventus on the board for the 3-0 on a flawless left-footed cross from Cristiano Ronaldo after a counterattack. Ronaldo would get on the scoresheet himself with a header from Miralem Pjanic's corner next. Substitute Emre Can rounded off the scoring late on.

In a Premier League title race that is extremely close, Manchester City were looking to stay close to Liverpool in the standings. My feeling in the week was good and yesterday in the meeting it was good, and in the warm-up.

Juventus moved 11 points clear of second-placed Napoli as it continues its seemingly unstoppable march to a record-extending eighth successive Serie A title.

Juventus next take on Frosinone in the league on February 15th before a highly-anticipated meeting in the Champions League with Atletico Madrid, the first leg being played at the Wanda Metropolitano, allowing Ronny to return to the Spanish capital just months after leaving.

"Scoring for Milan is a dream come true, as it was to play for Milan, but I lived at Flamengo for years and that was my home", Paqueta said.

Khedira scored his second goal of the season in the 23rd minute to put Juve in front and committed displays from Blaise Matuidi and Federico Bernardeschi ensured Massimiliano Allegri's men did not miss Paulo Dybala, who was named on the bench after he stormed off the touchline against Parma.

Serie A: Bologna (Destro 17) 1 drew with Genoa 1 (Lerager 33); Atalanta 2 (Ilicic 57, Zapata 79) bt SPAL 1 (Petagna 8); Sassuolo 0 lost to Juventus 3 (Khedira 23, Ronaldo 70, Can 86); AC Milan 3 (Ceppitelli 12-og, Paqueta 22, Piatek 62) bt Cagliari 0.
