The Italian Serie A title race is well and truly on following Saturday’s results. Juventus, with Cristiano Ronaldo in the team and playing his best soccer in a while, came up short to minnows Hellas Verona by a 2-1 score.
Ronaldo had scored for Juventus after 65 minutes to give his team a 1-0 lead. With the goal, he made it ten league matches in a row with one, a record for the team. However, the first-place team managed to lose as Fabio Borini and Giampaolo Pazzini led an unlikely comeback from a team that moved up to sixth (out of 20) in the standings.
