Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice and created another goal as Juventus got back to winning ways in Serie A with a 4-1 victory over Udinese in Turin on Sunday.

The result moved the Italian  champions up to fifth in the standings.

Ronaldo opened the scoring with a trademark drive, after latching on to Aaron Ramsey’s pass, in the 31st minute.

He then threaded a perfect through ball into the path of Federico Chiesa to score Juve’s second goal four minutes into the second half.

However, the VAR had a busy evening in Turin.

First, the referee was asked to consult the pitch-side monitor before ruling out what Udinese thought was the opener for a handball early on.

Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey also suffered the same fate when he was penalised for handball, after a second look.

Ronaldo’s second goal put the result beyond any doubt as he took his goal tally to 14 league goals for the season — two more than anyone else in Serie A — in the 70th minute.
