Cristiano Ronaldo has fired Juventus into the early lead against Cagliari today, with a trademark header.

The Portuguese is known for his amazingly high leaps to attack the cross, and today’s was another of those.

Juventus may well have needed this early strike to settle their nerves after a devastating loss in midweek which saw them eliminated from the Champions League, but they can now set their sights on a comfortable win instead.
