Juventus 2-1 Sampdoria
Cristiano Ronaldo scored in both halves to give Juventus a 2-1 win over Sampdoria, as video assistant referee played a major role in Turin.
Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring after just 107 seconds as he cut in from the left and powered an effort past goalkeeper Emil Audero, who is on loan from Juventus.
Sampdoria equalized three minutes after half-an-hour from a penalty awarded after consultation with VAR, as the former Juve striker Fabio Quagliarella slot home from penalty spot.
Cristiano Ronaldo put his side back in front with a penalty that was awarded for a handball which did not look deliberate. The referee had a chat with the VAR, decides to have a look at the pitchside monitor and still thinks it was deliberate. Ronaldo scores to make it 2-1.
Riccardo Saponara thought he had taken a point, but the goal was ruled out by VAR.
Juventus go into the new year unbeaten in the league this season and having dropped just four points.
