Ignacio Pussetto scored a 90+4′ consolation goal after the Udinese defence was pounded for three by Juventus in a Serie A match in Turin on Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace (9′, 37′) and Leonardo Bonucci scored just before the break (45′) as Juventus raced to a three-goal first-half lead.

 

Nigerian Center half William Troost-Ekong played the entire duration, and despite the pummeling, was only bested by Pussetto in ratings (6.8 per whoscored.com) among the Udinese players.

 

Ekong attempted 3 tackles, made 5 interceptions and 4 blocks.

 

The defeat means I Friulani have one just one of their five matches in all competitions.

 

Luca Gotti’s men are now just above the relegation zone with 15 points; two more than 18th placed Brescia.
