Cristiano Ronaldo scores as Juventus thrash Fiorentina

Kieran Jackson

Juventus stretched their yawning lead atop Serie A to 11 points with a convincing 3-0 victory over Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

The defending champions, who have only dropped two points in the top-flight this season, went ahead courtesy of Rodrigo Bentancur's fine finish in the 31st minute.

Captain Giorgio Chiellini doubled their lead after the interval in scrappy fashion before Cristiano Ronaldo added gloss to the scoreline from the penalty spot.

The result emphatically ended Fiorentina's run of five successive draws as Juventus showed no sign of a European hangover.
