Ronaldo sets record as Juventus clinch eighth consecutive Serie A title


Juventus claimed their eighth consecutive Serie A title on Saturday, after coming from a goal down to beat Fiorentina 2-1.

Serbian defender, Nikola Milenkovic, had put Fiorentina ahead after six minutes.

However, Alex Sandro pulled Juve level 30 minutes later, before Fiorentina defender German Pezzella diverted Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross past his own goalkeeper to complete the comeback.

Ronaldo becomes the first footballer to win the Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A titles.

The day was a double cause for celebration, as Juventus’ women’s team won their second straight league title since being founded in 2017.

Petronella Ekroth, Cristiana Girelli and Eniola Aluko wrapped up a convincing 3-0 victory over Verona, to narrowly edge Fiorentina to the title by one point.
