The Portuguese striker drilled in a low shot in the seventh minute as Reina got down well to make the stop.

However, the 35-year-old was at the right place at the right time to jab home a Juan Cuadrado's cross to make it 1-0 after 15 minutes.

Lazio's first real chance of the match fell to Vedat Muriqi and it could have been the equalizer but the Kosovan star could not deliver the final tap-in from a cross from the right.

CR7 tested the Lazio goalkeeper on two occasions. It first went narrowly wide while the second was brilliantly punched away from a set-piece.

Just before half time, the Portuguese icon's shot hit the woodwork with Reina completely beaten.

The second half was much livelier as Juve wasted several chances on goal. Alvaro Morata had the opportunity to get his name on the scoresheet but to no avail.

Alvaro Morata's brace along with a goal from Paulo Dybala and an own goal from the Ferencvaros goalkeeper was enough for Juve to seal the win.

But a late goal from the home team have now seen the Biaconeri played four consecutive matches without keeping a clean sheet.
