It seemed that Juventus was losing the possibility of asserting themselves in qualifying positions for the Champions League. However, Cristiano Ronaldo donned his superhero suit and saved the Turin team from suffering a new frustration on the day that Inter became champions. With two goals to close the game, the Portuguese gave Vecchia Signora a 2-1 victory against Udinese on the 34th date and allowed them to remain in the leading positions of Serie A.

The match had started complicated for those led by Andrea Pirlo since the Argentine footballer Nahuel Molina opened the account for the local team 10 minutes into the first half. It was a conquest with 100% Albiceleste elaboration since the assistance was given by Rodrigo De Paul when he quickly played a free kick near the area.

After that initial blow, it was difficult for Juventus to find the best version of him and just at the end CR7 appeared with all his hierarchy and his scoring ability to turn the result around. At 37 minutes into the second half, the Portuguese scored the penalty tie with an accurate shot. The referee had awarded the maximum penalty after a free kick taken by the Vecchia Signora striker who had hit the arm of one of the defenders on the wall.

With only a minute to go, Pirlo's men found themselves with a victory that until a few moments ago seemed unthinkable. The Frenchman Adrien Rabiot sent a long ball from the left and Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to win with a head in the area and sentence the final 2-1. It was a wild celebration, number 27 for the Portuguese in the current season of the Italian league (he is the top scorer, followed by Romelu Lukaku with 21).

On the day that Inter became champion and cut Juventus' run of nine consecutive titles, the Turin team was saved from being left out of the positions that give tickets to the next Champions League. Pirlo's team had 69 points and is in third place in the standings. It has the same units as Atalanta (2nd) and Milan (4th). Napoli appears below, with 67.
