Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to set yet another goal-scoring landmark and help Juventus to a 3-1 home win over Udinese on Sunday that sent them back to the top of the Serie A table.

In-form Ronaldo, who has five goals in his last four games, took his tally for the season to 11 in 19 appearances, becoming the only player in Europe's top five leagues to hit double figures in all competitions in each of the last 15 seasons.

He struck twice in the first half before Leonardo Bonucci headed in Juve's third on the brink of half-time.

Ignacio Pussetto netted a consolation for the visitors late in the game.

Juventus suffered their first defeat of the season at Lazio last weekend to surrender the lead to Inter Milan, but the champions put pressure back on Antonio Conte's side by moving one point clear at the top with victory at the Allianz Stadium.

Maurizio Sarri's side have 39 points, but Inter can regain first place by beating Fiorentina away in the late game on Sunday.





Udinese remain in relegation trouble after falling to 17th place on 15 points, hovering just two points above the drop zone.
