  • Ronaldo keeps scoring as Juventus soar 11 points clear

Juventus extended their lead at the top of Serie A to 11 points after beating Sassuolo 3-0 courtesy of goals from Sami Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo and Emre Can. But Massimiliano Allegri's side re-established a comfortable advantage with victory at the Mapei Stadium after Napoli drew with Fiorentina on Saturday.

"To play like this, everyone needs to contribute, but we should also compliment the team for how they dealt with the game".

"It all depends on who you are playing against".

"Sassuolo have a strong midfield, so I had to balance my team that way".

"Players are disappointed, but every now and then sitting on the bench is necessary to recharge batteries and rediscover the right mental toughness".

Allegri said: "We had a risk early on that (goalkeeper Wojciech) Szczesny dealt with, but after a quarter of an hour we started to play".

Since moving to Turin from Real Madrid in a €100million (£88.5m) move last summer, the 34-year-old Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in 23 league appearances, and 20 in 31 appearances in all competitions overall.

Last weekend Juventus blew a 3-1 lead to draw 3-3 at home to Parma late on, which sparked talk of a crisis but Khedira settled any nerves when he opened the scoring on 23 minutes after Ronaldo's effort had been saved by Andrea Consigli.

Khedira missed another golden opportunity to extend the lead when he missed again from close range but Juventus eventually got their second goal with 70 minutes on the clock.

Juve might have lacked a creative presence in and around the penalty area with Dybala being dropped but Khedira's all-action display ensured the Argentine playmaker was not missed.

Juventus have had a couple of shaky games in the last few weeks, which include a 3-0 loss to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia.

Earlier, Atalanta, briefly moved into the Champions League places with a 2-1 win over SPAL - the in-form Duvan Zapata netting their victor with his 18th goal in 12 games.

But city rival AC Milan is just four points behind Inter in fourth after beat struggling Cagliari 3-0, with new signings Lucas Paqueta and Krzysztof Piatek both scoring.
