You just can’t hold down a world class superstar, can you? You might be able to do it for a half, but doing it for two, particularly when you’re team is a man down is nigh on impossible. That’s the task Lecce found themselves in following a red card to defender Fabio Lucioni in the 31st minute on Friday in Serie A.
Paulo Dybala scored after half time, giving them the lead before Cristiano Ronaldo struck home a penalty and then assisted on two further goals. One came from Gonzalo Higuain and the other from Matthijs de Ligt to make it a 4-0 final score. The win ensures Juventus remain top of the Serie A table, seven points clear of closest rivals Lazio currently. Lazio do have a game-in-hand, but they have a ton of ground to make up at this stage.
