Cristiano Ronaldo scores his second goal of the match to put Juventus on level terms with AS Roma for the second time.

Immediately after Juventus had initially leveled the scoreline through Cristiano Ronaldo, Jordan Vertout struck again to put AS Roma on the front foot just at the stroke of half-time.

The Bianconeri went into the break with a disadvantage and they were put into a much weaker position into the second half after Adrien Rabiot was given marching orders at the 62nd minute.

However, Ronaldo, as he so often does, rose to the occasion, quite literally, when his team was in much need for someone to step up.

The prolific Portuguese towered above the Roma defense to meet a cross from Danilo from the right flank before thumping the ball past a helpless Antonio Mirante.
