  • The champagne remains on ice for Juve after they missed the chance to seal a record sixth consecutive Serie A title with two games to go. The Bianconeri needed just a point away to closest rivals Roma and looked well set when Mario Lemina grabbed his first goal for the club this season. Resting a number of key players from kick-off, Massimiliano Allegri's men were left reeling by the final whistle, however, as the hosts completed a comeback victory to prolong the title drama. Juve will now look to cross the finishing line at home to Crotone next Sunday, after facing Lazio in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo reached another remarkable landmark in his Real Madrid career as the Merengues stayed on course to clinch the Liga crown. Nacho put the home side in front with a quickly taken free-kick, but then it was over to Ronaldo to write a little more history, the No7 tapping in a rebound to bring up his 400th goal for Madrid in his 391st game. He was not finished there either, restoring his team's two-goal lead late on before Toni Kroos added gloss to the result. Zinédine Zidane's charges remain level on points with Barcelona at the Liga summit and have two fixtures left to play compared to one for Barça.
