Cristiano Ronaldo's brace was all Juventus needed to overcome stubborn Lazio in their 2-1 win at the Allianz Stadium.

The 35-year-old handed the Old Lady the lead through the spot in the 51st minute after his initial shot was blocked just at the edge of the danger zone.

He doubled his side's lead and at the same time completed his double in the game barely three minutes later with a simple tap in.

Argentine playmaker Paulo Dybala set the winger up after making a solo run into the visitor's goal area and then passed the ball to Ronaldo who buried the ball without any issue.

Ciro Immobile reduced his side's deficit seven minutes from time through a penalty but his goal wasn't enough to stop them from losing.

Juventus maintain their lead on the table with 80 points after 34 league matches - eight points better than contenders Inter Milan with the same number of games.

Ronaldo set some strange records after the match after becoming the third player to score 30 goals in the Serie A in the last 60 years.

He matched the records set by Luca Toni and Gonzalo Higuain while Immobile also joined the party with the spot-kick that helped increase his tally to 30 goals this campaign.

The five-time Ballon Ballon d'Or winner also became the fastest player to reach 50 Serie A goals since he was born in 1985 (61 games).

The former Real Madrid attacker is also the first to score over 50 goals in the English, Italian and Spanish topflight.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo was all shades of excitement over the weekend after spending time with his children in the swimming pool.

The 35-year-old attacker was submerged in the water up to his waist level while pushing his younger children in a big floater.

Briefly.co.za noted that Cristiano Junior and Georgina Rodriguez are the only ones missing in the family fun after the five-time Ballon d'Or winner shared the stunning pictures on his Instagram page.

The former Real Madrid attacker posed for a picture with three of his children while standing by a pink flamingo floater in the middle of the pool.
