Cristiano Ronaldo on the win
“We knew it was going to be a difficult game, Lazio have had a great season so far. We had a great opportunity playing at home. And, we could have scored more, but we played a good match. My record? Records are always important, but what matters is the team. We are doing phenomenal work and the important thing is to end like this, to win: the records come from a natural process, but what matters is to bring home the league title.”
Juventus hold a 8-point lead over second Inter Milan with 4 games left to play. They look to claim a league record 36 national titles over the next couple weeks.
