Messi, Ronaldo score match winners for Barcelona, Juventus on Sunday night



Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both bagged winners on Sunday, and both their teams remained atop their respective leagues. Messi scored to cap a brilliant Barcelona buildup in a 1-0 win over Granada, while Ronaldo’s brace lifted Juventus past Parma 2-1.

Barcelona was playing its first match under new manager Quique Setién, hired on Monday after the sacking of Ernesto Valverde. The Catalans dominated possession but had nothing to show for it until the 76th minute, when Arturo Vidal took Antoine Griezmann’s filthy flick and set up Messi.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, fired Juve ahead shortly before halftime, with a shot that deflected off Matteo Darmian. Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 5 goals in his last 3 matches.
