Cristiano Ronaldo did what he does best in the Serie A match against Sampdoria on Wednesday at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris – the winning goal.
Paulo Dybala scored the opening goal for Juve in the 19th minute. But Gianluca Caprari equalised in the 35th minute before he was sent off the pitch with a red card at stoppage time.
Then Ronaldo scored the winning goal at half time to see Juve reclaim the top spot in Serie A above Inter Milan.
Sampdoria thought they had equalised when Saponara’s strike found the back of the net at injury time but it was ruled out by VAR as an offside.
Speaking with Sky Italia, Ronaldo revealed what he thought about VAR.
“The team did very well in this first part of the season, winning almost every game, but the season is still long, we need to stay focused and keep working. VAR? I like it because it eliminates mistakes, but in any case, it is difficult for the referee to make it work. We need to let them work.” He said.
Next, Juve will play against Lazio in Supercoppa Italiana final in Saudi Arabia on Sunday. Sampdoria will visit AC Milan on 6 January, 2020.
