Loading… Alex Sandro soon headed Juve’s point-saver to keep the Serie A leaders seven points clear of second-placed Atalanta with five games left as they eye a ninth successive crown. But Ronaldo had to wait until late on for the main exception to his own quiet night, his twinkling footwork conjuring a fierce shot well saved by home keeper Andrea Consigli. It was the first time in six Serie A games that the former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward has failed to score in Serie A, having amassed seven in six following the restart. Sassuolo’s Moroccan midfielder Mehdi Bourabia gives Cristiano Ronaldo a helping hand, which some feel the ref did too by not showing him a red card Read Also: Messi predicts Champions League doom if Barca fail to change But 32 goals so far this season, including 28 in the league, is still an incredible feat. And if Juve do retain the title Ronaldo will become the first player to win two domestic crowns apiece in Italy, Spain and England.

The Juventus superstar went into tonight’s 3-3 thriller at Sassuolo with 20 goals from his past 18 games, needing one more strike to become the first player to net 50 times in the Italian, Spanish and English top flights. Juventus frontman Cristiano Ronaldo was booked for a contentious challenge on Sassuoolo midfielder Francesco Magnanelli But as well as failing to provide a goal or assist for the first time in 19 matches, he also caught Sassuolo’s record-appearance holder Francesco Magnanelli with a studs-up challenge. Referee Paolo Valeri merely booked Ronaldo, who was perhaps showing his frustration as Sassuolo had turned a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead.

After impressive performances against the University of Wisconsin last weekend, the Women of Troy were swept by top-ranked California and eighth-ranked Stanford in two very close meets over the weekend at McDonald’s Stadium.These were the first two losses for USC this season, and for the seniors, the meets were the last ones at home in their careers.Staying afloat · While the Women of Troy lost their weekend meets to California and Stanford, they still sit in a position to win the Pac-12 conference. They will face UCLA in two weeks in Westwood. – Anna Wierzbowska | Daily TrojanAgainst the Bears, senior Katinka Hosszu won the 200-yard backstroke, the 400-yard individual medley and was part of the winning 200-yard medley relay team, while senior diver Victoria Ishimatsu won the three-meter and one-meter diving events. It was not enough, however, to overcome the Bear’s combination of Caitlin Leverenz and Sara Isakovic, and the Women of Troy fell by a final score of 138-162.While they lost the meet, USC had several individual winners. Besides Hosszu and Ishimatsu, Haley Anderson (1000-yard freestyle, 500-yard freestyle), and sophomore Kasey Carlson (100-yard breaststroke) won their competitions.“Hosszu and Anderson were on top of their game,” head coach Dave Salo said, despite the close weekend losses.There was no rest for the Women of Troy, as they faced Stanford the next day, who beat them by a final score of 160.5-139.5.While Anderson (1000-yard freestyle), Hosszu (200-yard freestyle, 200-yard IM), Carlson (100-yard breaststroke), and senior Tanya Krisman (200-yard butterfly) were winners, the Cardinal could not be stopped and were led by Samantha Woodward and Maya Dirado.The 400-yard freestyle relay was the difference betwen victory and defeat for the Women of Troy, as they lost by nearly five seconds to Stanford’s squad.“Both meets were great in challenging our women,” Salo said. “[These losses] can only make us better for the Pac-12 championships and the NCAA championships.”The Women of Troy will take on UCLA on Feb. 11 on the road. After that, USC will participate in the Pac-12 championships in late February and in the NCAA championships in March.
