On this day in 2021, Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus hosted Giovanni Stroppa’s Crotone at the empty Allianz Stadium.
The Bianconeri dominated the action from the first whistle to the last. After wasting a flurry of chances, Alex Sandro’s sublime cross found Cristiano Ronaldo who opened the scoring with a nice header.
The Portuguese superstar then utilized his incredible physical strength to meet Aaron Ramsey’s byline cross with a towering header to make it 2-0.
In the second period, Weston McKennie smashed the ball home from close range to put the exclamation mark on a commanding display.
