Juventus close to the title as Ronaldo makes history.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now become the fastest player to reach 50 Serie A goals. Juventus has now placed themselves on the brink of a ninth successive Seria A tiltle with a 2-1 victory over Lazio.
Juventus are close to retaining the Scudetto after defeating Lazio 2-1 all kudos to Cristiano Ronaldo's record breaking brace.
Juventus went into Monday's game with the opportunity to go eight points at the top with four games remaining both inter and Atalanta lost points at the weekend.
They made no room for a slip up against a Lazio club whose title hope faded badly since the games restarted.
Ronaldo scored twice in the space of three second-half minutes to ensure victory.
The Match ended in a stalemate in the first half, but came to life after Ronaldo opened the scoring with a penalty.
He got his half-century goals in 61 matches after he scored the 51st minute penalty and with an easy finish for a second that looked to have ended the game as a contest. But Ciro Immobile's penalty set up a frenzy finale which the Old lady survived to all but ensure the title will remain in Turin.
