Ronaldo scored the first goal for Juventus in the 13th minute, and Brazilian defender Roger Ibanez da Silva added Juventus' second goal by mistake in his own net in the 70th minute.
The Portuguese striker was unable to score in 3 consecutive Italian Football League matches for the first time since August 2019.
It is difficult to consider Ronaldo in a scoring crisis, but the situation is not familiar to the Portuguese star, who has scored two goals in the last 6 games in the league, but he is still the only top scorer in the tournament with 16 goals, two goals behind Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.
The American site "Bleacher Report", which specializes in numbers and sports culture, stated that Ronaldo had reached his goal of 300, since he was 30 years old.
