Maurizio Sarri's men continued their superb run in the month as they defeated Parma by 2-1 and Ronaldo was not left out among the scorers in the match, scoring two goals for his side.

Juventus suffered their second loss of the season when they traveled to Naples to face Napoli in a week 21 match.

Two second half goals from Poland midfielder Piotr Zielinski and Lorenzo Insigne gave Gennaro Gattuso's side a 2-0 lead.

But a 90 minute strike from Ronaldo was not enough to salvage a point for the Serie A champions but their Portuguese striker continued his remarkable goal scoring form.

In total, Ronaldo has scored 17 league goals, four short of his 21 strikes in the last campaign that earned him the league best player.

Juventus will be welcoming Fiorentina to the Allianz Stadium for a week 22 clash and Ronaldo will be looking to add to his tally.
