Cristiano Ronaldo scored for a seventh consecutive Serie A game as his brace gave leaders Juventus victory at home to Parma.
Ronaldo opened the scoring two minutes before half-time with a deflected effort off Matteo Darmian.
Andreas Cornelius’ powerful header reconditioned parity, however, Ronaldo slotted home Paulo Dybala’s pass to restore Juve’s lead three minutes later.
The result lifts Juventus four points afar from second-placed Inter Milano.
Ronaldo is the initial player to score in seven consecutive league games for Juventus since David Trezeguet netted in 9 sequential matches in 2005.
The Portuguese forward went about to finishing his hat-trick within the second half, shooting straight at Parma goalkeeper Luigi Sepe from a tight angle.
Juventus keeper Wojciech Szczesny had to get on his toes to deny Jasmin Kurtic and Hernani as the guests pushed for a late equalizer, whereas Matthijs de Ligt did well to block Mattia Sprocati’s goal-bound effort late on.
Inter Milano didn’t place pressure on Maurizio Sarri’s side earlier within the day, drawing 1-1 with troubled Lecce.
