Business Daily (Kenya) - - SPORTS -

Ju­ven­tus made it seven wins in a row at the start of the Serie A sea­son, com­ing from be­hind to beat se­cond-placed Napoli and move six points clear. The vis­i­tors led when Dries Mertens tapped into an empty net. Cris­tiano Ronaldo had a hand in all three Juve goals, irst cross­ing for Mario Mandzu­kic to head an equaliser. He had a shot come off the post, with Mandzu­kic scor­ing the re­bound and then Ronaldo flicked a header on for Leonardo Bonucci to score. Napoli ended with 10 men af­ter Mario Rui was shown a se­cond yel­low card, for a foul on Paulo Dy­bala, with the score 2 1. Ju­ven­tus, who are look­ing for an eighth con­sec­u­tive league ti­tle, rode their luck at 0 0 - with Piotr Zielin­ski's long-range strike hit­ting the post for Napoli. Ronaldo has only scored in two of his eight Ju­ven­tus games, although he was lively at the Al­lianz Sta­dium. As well as cre­at­ing all three, he had chances to score him­self - with ive shots on tar­get. They have won all eight games this sea­son, in­clud­ing the 2 0 win over Va­len­cia in the Cham­pi­ons League, where Ronaldo was sent off. Ear­lier in the day, Roma beat Lazio 3 1 in the cap­i­tal derby. Lorenzo Pel­le­grini gave them the lead, with Ciro Im­mo­bile equal­is­ing. But for­mer Pre­mier League de­fend­ers Alek­san­dar Ko­larov and Fed­erico Fazio net­ted to give Roma vic­tory. In­ter Mi­lan picked up their fourth vic­tory in their last ive games with a 2 0 win over Cagliari - Lau­taro Martinez and Mat­teo Poli­tano net­ting for the home side.
