ROME (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo bounced back from a difficult week by scoring a decisive penalty to help Juventus complete a 2-1 comeback win at Lazio on Sunday.Juventus was overwhelmed for more than an hour at the Stadio Olimpico but two late goals enabled the Serie A leader to avoid its first loss of the season.Ronaldo confidently struck his spot kick into the roof of the net three minutes from time — a week after he had a penalty saved during a win over Chievo Verona.Also this week Cheap Japan Soccer Jerseys , Ronaldo pleaded guilty to tax fraud in Spain — adding to his off-field difficulties following an accusation of rape in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009. Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing.Lazio went ahead near the hour mark when Emre Can scored an own-goal.But Joao Cancelo scored on Juventus’ first chance less than 15 minutes later, turning in a rebound of a shot from Paulo Dybala following strong work from Federico Bernardeschi to provide a cross from the left flank.Then Senad Lulic was whistled for a foul on Cancelo directly in front of the goal to set up Ronaldo’s penalty.Still, it was a difficult night for Juventus as defender Leonardo Bonucci hobbled off with an apparent injury in the first half.Juventus didn’t produce a single shot in the first half and defender Daniele Rugani had to clear a dangerous effort from Ciro Immobile off the line.“For 50-60 minutes it was the worst Juventus of the season,” Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini said. “We always struggle against Lazio but we’re leaving with a good result.”The victory moved Juventus 11 points clear of second-placed Napoli, which was held to a 0-0 draw at AC Milan on Saturday.ROMA WASTES BIG LEADRoma wasted a three-goal lead and a chance to move into the Champions League places in a 3-3 draw at Atalanta.Edin Dzeko had scored twice to end a long drought and Stephan El Shaarawy also found the target for Roma before Atalanta struck back with goals from Timothy Castagne, Rafael Toloi and Duvan Zapata.A minute after Zapata had sent a penalty far above the bar Cheap Mexico Soccer Shirts , he scored the equalizer by finishing off a counterattack, extending his scoring streak to eight matches.The 27-year-old Zapata, who is on loan from Sampdoria, has 15 goals this season, tied with Ronaldo, one behind league-leader Fabio Quagliarella of Sampdoria.Roma is fifth Cheap Nigeria Soccer Jerseys , one point behind Milan.Atalanta is eighth.INTER’S RUN ENDSInter Milan’s five-match unbeaten run ended with a 1-0 loss at Torino.Armando Izzo scored with a looping header before the break and Inter ended with 10 men when Matteo Politano was sent off for protests.Inter remained third, eight points behind Napoli and five ahead of Milan.OTHER MATCHESItaly international Federico Chiesa scored twice as Fiorentina won 4-3 at Chievo in a wild match.Spal came back from two goals down for a 3-2 victory at Parma, with Mohamed Fares scoring the winner.And in a meeting of two clubs in the relegation zone, visiting Frosinone beat 10-man Bologna 4-0 — putting Bologna coach Filippo Inzaghi’s job at risk. Constant rumors are starting to get on some player's nerves, and the last footballer to give in was none other than Neymar.The Brazilian ace has had a week to forget following the diagnosis on his right foot. The footballer will spend up to ten weeks in rehab to recover from a broken bone in his right foot (the same one he injured prior to the World Cup last year). With that in mind, one can think that journalists would cease to ask questions about his future and leave the man alone to recover in peace.That was not the case. As he made his way into the airport using crutches www.thetopsoccer.com/poland , a Spanish journalist asked him about a possible comeback to Barcelona. Neymar tried to ignore the question, but he couldn't take it anymore and ended up yelling an insult to the journalist.Here's the footage of the incident, along with the proper translation.Journalist: "Ney, how are you feeling, what did the doctor say? Are you still dreaming about returning to Barcelona or not? Have you spoken to your former team-mates? Is it true that you have phoned Barcelona to make a comeback to the team?"Neymar: "Stop busting my ba**s!" The Brazilian ace could end up missing up to 15 games, including both legs of Les Parisiens' UEFA Champions League clash against Manchester United Cheap Portugal Soccer Shirts , which makes it two years in a row where PSG will have to face a KO stage game without their superstar.
