Determined to not let another game go without scoring, the Portuguese phenomenon found the net with a superb strike in stoppage time.

Cristiano Ronaldo has doubled Juventus’ lead in the dying minutes of the Serie A fixture against Sassuolo.

Ronaldo had had a much frustrating evening with much trouble finding the back of the net. It seemed he was going to have a second-successive goalless league game but he had other ideas.

The former Real Madrid forward, after being played through by Danilo, used pace to outrun his markers before sending a low, driven shot into the back of the net.

It is his 15th strike of the Serie A season and he has now established a three-goal lead over Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku in the Capocannoniere race.
