Juventus crowd produces incredible ‘SIIIIIIII’: Cristiano Ronaldo scored a winner through an 88th-minute penalty against Lazio.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late winner in the game against Lazio as Juventus secured another three points to maintain an eleven-point lead over the second-placed Napoli in the Serie A.
The Italian champions conceded an own goal in the early stages of the second half, but Joao Cancelo stepped up for the side.
The Portuguese attacker scored the first goal of the game and won the penalty in the dying minutes of the match after he was fouled as he prepared to receive Rodrigo Bentancur’s cross.
Cristiano Ronaldo sent the goalkeeper the wrong way as he slotted the penalty straight through the middle of the goal to win the game for Juventus.
As he did his trademark celebration after scoring the goal, the Juventus crowd produced an incredible ‘SIIIIIII’.

“There was no system or tactics that could stop him. He was fast and skilled. When Ronaldo had the ball, he ran at 2,000 miles per hour. In most cases, you’re fast without the ball, he was fast with it.”
