As Portugal go into their final two Nations League games against Italy and Poland, their captain Cristiano Ronaldo is nearing the top of Italy’s ‘Serie A’ goalscoring charts after scoring his fifth goal in as many league games for Juventus.

Their 2-0 victory over AC Milan at San Siro underlines his team’s dominance in Italy.
His latest goal puts Ronaldo on nine ‘Serie A’ goals, just one behind current leading scorer Krzysztof Piatek of Genoa. “I am very happy, especially for the team, because playing away to Milan is always very difficult,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports Italia.
Parma’s veteran Portuguese central defender Bruno Alves shows no sign of slowing down with age as he continued his record of playing every minute so far in Italy this season.

Alves, who turns thirty-seven later this month, took his place in the heart of Parma’s defence for their impressive 2-1 victory away at Torino.
Meanwhile, Nuno Espírito Santo was glowing in his praise of Wolverhampton Wanderers after their draw with Arsenal at the Emirates.
Former Benfica man Ivan Cavaleiro got the Wolves goal and the starting line-up also included Rui Patricio, Rúben Neves, João Moutinho and Hélder Costa.
Following their famous 2-1 victory against Juventus in Italy, José Mourinho’s Manchester United were brought down to earth as they suffered a 3-1 defeat in the local derby against a rampant Manchester City.
