Full time

On the same day that Inter won the league title and ended nine years of Juventus dominance, the Bianconeri almost suffered another stumble in Serie A.

Nahuel Molina made it 1-0 for Udinese just 10 minutes in after catching the visitors on their heels.

Lacking any attacking presence, it took 30 minutes for Juventus to record their first shot of the match when a wide-open Weston McKennie headed wide.

After the break, an alert Udinese continued to sniff out any threat from Juventus and were on their way to victory until Cristiano Ronaldo appeared.

A penalty from the Portuguese forward tied it 1-1 in the 85th minute then in the dying moments, Ronaldo secured a brace to win it 2-1.

With the result, Udinese sit eleventh and Juventus sit third.
