An equalizing goal from Cristiano Ronaldo in the Turin derby has helped keep the 36-year-old on course to finish as the Serie A top-Scorer for the first time in his three-year stay.
Having finished fourth in 2018-19 and runner-up last season, the Portuguese is edging closer to becoming the Italian goal king in his third campaign.
Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, saved the Bianconeri on Saturday by scoring a late equalizer against Torin to salvage a 2-2 draw. He almost had the goal incorrectly ruled out again by the referee for offside, but thankfully, unlike Serbia, VAR was around to intervene this time.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has now scored 24 goals in only 25 Serie A games to keep a four-goal lead over Romelu Lukaku, who scored the match-winner in Inter Milan’s 1-0 triumph over Bologna.
Elsewhere, Luis Muriel bagged a brace on Saturday to help Atalanta beat Udinese 3-2. The Colombia striker has moved three goals clear of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who failed to score in AC Milan’s 1-1 draw with Sampdoria, and is slowly putting pressure on Lukaku.

Where Is Ronaldo’s Juve In The Standings?
Cristiano Ronaldo’s equalizer against Torino won Juventus a valuable point to move back ahead of Napoli into fourth-place on goal difference. The two clubs will meet in Turin for their next Serie A match on Wednesday.
However, Inter’s 1-0 win over Bologna has left Juventus 12 points behind the Serie A leaders. And with only 10 games left in the season, a 10th consecutive league title looks unlikely right now.
