Ronaldo finally scores free kick at 43rd attempt to reach Juve landmark

Cristiano Ronaldo finally scored a free-kick for Juventus - from his 43rd attempt - as he became the first player to score 25 Serie A goals in a season for the club since 1961. The derby win over Torino was also notable for Gianluigi Buffon's record-breaking 648th Serie A appearance. Paulo Dybala put Juve ahead and Ronaldo set up a Juan Cuadrado goal.

Mason Greenwood scored twice in the Premier League for the first time as Manchester United came from behind to beat Bournemouth 5-2 and increase the Cherries' relegation worries.

Marcus Rashford had put United 2-1 in front from the penalty spot and Anthony Martial then increased the advantage with a brilliant curling effort into the top corner just before the break. In an action-packed game, Joshua King pulled one back for Bournemouth with a penalty four minutes after the interval, but Eddie Howe's men crumbled ...
