Late penalty from Ronaldo earns Juventus a win from a goal down

Lazio 1-2 Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo scored an 88th-minute penalty goal to secure a win for Juventus as they came from behind to beat Lazio and go 11 points clear at the top of Serie A.

It looked like Juventus were heading for their first defeat of the Serie A season after a 59th minute own goal from Emry Can.

But Joao Cancelo who came in as a substitute for Douglas Costa scored from close range to level for Juve.

Then Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 17th goal of the season from a calm and cool spot-kick to give Juventus the victory as they remain unbeaten.

Juventus will target to progress into the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia when they face Atalanta in their next game on Wednesday.
