Maurizio Sarri praises Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother after Juventus beat Roma

Ronaldo scored Juve’s opener with an excellent left-footed finish before Rodrigo Bentancur and Leonardo Bonucci found the net to put Sarri’s side 3-0 ahead. Gianluigi Buffon’s own goal gave Roma a glimmer of hope but it wasn’t enough and Juve will now face either AC Milan or Torino in the semi-finals. After the match, Sarri admitted he found it difficult to find a flaw in Ronaldo’s game and could only praise the forward’s mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro for ‘creating such a specimen’.
