Cristiano Ronaldo Scores First Club Free-Kick In Over Two Years And It's A Stunner

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first free-kick for Juventus and first in club football for over two years on Saturday as his side romped to a 4-1 win over Torino.

Maurizio Sarri's side were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado but Ronaldo stepped up to put clear daylight between the two sides.

The 35-year-old used his trademark knuckleball technique to bend the ball into the top left corner to leave Salvatore Sirigu scrambling.

Fans have reacted to Ronaldo's first goal from a free-kick at club level since December 2017 and they're loving it.

Victory for Juve moves them seven points clear of Lazio at the top of Serie A as 'The Old Lady' side search for a ninth title in a row.

Dybala opened the scoring inside three minutes with a tricky run through the Torino defence before calmly slotting home.

Cuadrado doubled their lead through a far post drive, with Ronaldo registering the assist.

Torino then pulled one back just before half-time through an Andrea Belotti penalty.

Ronaldo's strike then restored Juve's two goal advantage before a Koffi Djidji own goal saw the game end 4-1.
