Cristiano Ronaldo: Florenzi gets last laugh after height taunts

Alessandro Florenzi was mocked by Cristiano Ronaldo for being too short, but he had the last laugh.

Atalanta beat Genoa 2-1 on Saturday to move third two points ahead of Inter Milan, who play bottom club Chievo on Monday. "We have to continue to believe".

Playing in their new jerseys, Juventus with nothing left to play for, and with growing speculation over Allegri's future, failed to take advantage of their first half domination.

Roma goalkeeper Antonio Mirante made brilliant early saves to deny Juan Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala before Lorenzo Pellegrini hit the bar for the home side.

And with 10 minutes remaining, the Italian got his revenge on Ronaldo and Juve when he dinked in a fine close-range finish to set the hosts on course for victory, before striker Edin Dzeko then wrapped up the three points in time added on.

Italy worldwide Florenzi attempted to confront Ronaldo but was ushered away by referee Davide Massa while the 34-year-old was shushing his opponent, before mocking his height with an insightful hand gesture.

Serie A champions Juventus on Sunday unveiled their new home kit for the 2019/20 season, which for the first time in over a century removes the iconic black-and-white stripes traditionally worn by players.

"We knew very well how important it was to win today", said Belotti.

Andrea Belotti scored twice for Torino, including a stunning overhead kick to win the match, eight minutes from time.

Before facing Betis, Real Madrid have scored 40 fewer goals than last season and have gone from an average of 2.3 goals per game to 1.9.
