Serie A: Ronaldo Happy To Break Jinx At San Siro
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored everywhere and anywhere that matters but up until Sunday night, San Siro had proved not to be good hunting ground for the Portuguese star.
However, Ronaldo ended his San Siro hoodoo to help Juventus to a 2-0 win after AC Milan forward Gonzalo Higuain missed a penalty against his former team on Sunday.
Higuain left Juventus in the off-season following the signing of Ronaldo and he had a nightmare game as he was also sent off seven minutes from time for dissent after being booked for a foul on Medhi Benatia.
Mario Mandzukic scored early on and Ronaldo sealed the result nine minutes from the end as Serie A leader Juventus won at Milan to restore its six-point advantage over second-placed Napoli, which beat Genoa 2-1 on Saturday.
It was Ronaldo's first goal in six matches at San Siro, having previously played at the iconic stadium for Manchester United and Real Madrid.
he Portugal forward raced to the corner flag, beckoning all his teammates over to celebrate with him.
"I'm very happy, especially for the team," said Ronaldo, who has been playing and scoring regularly despite facing a rape allegation in the United States. "We played good football, it's never easy to play at San Siro against Milan.
"We showed we're superior, I'm really happy. It's an important win, we're back six points ahead of Napoli. I also scored a goal, I'm satisfied."
Milan on their part slipped to fifth, a point behind fourth-placed Lazio, after seeing its three-match winning run in the league brought to an end.
