Ronaldo gives coach Pirlo the first prize at Juventus, Dost scores again | NOW
Cristiano Ronaldo gave Andrea Pirlo the first prize as a Juventus coach on Wednesday. Partly thanks to a goal by the Portuguese legend, ‘Juve’ beat Napoli 2-0 and the Turin club won the Italian Super Cup. In Belgium, Bas Dost prevailed again with a goal.
After 64 minutes, Ronaldo broke the spell for Juventus against Napoli. A Federico Bernardeschi corner unexpectedly landed on the head of the Neapolitan Tiemoué Bakayoko and Ronaldo was there like the chickens to score the 1-0 behind David Ospina.
It was Ronaldo’s 760th official career target. Although, according to various statistical authorities, the Portuguese dethroned Josef Bican as the top scorer of all time, FIFA has scored more than 805 goals for the Austrian Bican, who was active at Slavia Prague and Rapid Vienna from the 1930s to 1950s, among others. .
With ten minutes left, Napoli had a chance to tie, but Lorenzo Insigne missed a penalty. The Italian international shot from 11 meters. In the last minute of stoppage time, substitute Álvaro Morata decided the game 2-0.
By winning the Italian Super Cup, Pirlo won his first prize as a Juventus coach. The 41-year-old coach, who won seven prizes as a player with the Italian record champions, was appointed to the ‘Old Lady’ in August and is under high tension after a bad start. Juventus is “only” fifth in Serie A.
Matthijs de Ligt was missing from the Juventus game selection. Orange International, 21, tested positive for the corona virus on Jan. 8 and is still in isolation.
Bas Dost once again contributed to Club Bruges’ victory with a goal.
Dost scores again for Club Brugge
Dost scored the third game in a row for Club Bruges in the competition game won with KV Oostende. The striker made 1: 1 for the reigning Belgian national champions, who secured three points after the break with a goal from Krépin Diatta: 2: 1.
The 31-year-old Dost moved from German Eintracht Frankfurt to Club Bruges at the end of December and has scored in every game of the Belgian club since then. Noa Lang, who has already scored seven goals in the Jupiler Pro League this season, failed to score.
Ryan Donk was exactly in Galatasaray. The 34-year-old former RKC Waalwijk and AZ player scored 3-0 for number three in the Turkish Süper Lig in a 6-1 game against the last player Denizlispor.
