Ronaldo leaves stadium before final whistle after being substituted

Maurizio Sarri's Cristiano Ronaldo gambles have been justified. GOAL

Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted for the second straight game as replacement Paulo Dybala scored the victor against AC Milan to return Juventus to the top of Serie A.

After a quick exchange of passes, the Argentine twisted past Alessio Romagnoli and beat Gianluigi Donnarumma with a right foot shot.

The 34-year-old was replaced by Paulo Dybala in the 55th minute during Juve's Serie A clash with AC Milan and immediately made his way up the tunnel after coming from the pitch.

Five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo looked glum as he came off and directed some words at coach Maurizio Sarri before heading to the changing rooms and Sky Sport Italia reported that the 34-year-old had left the stadium three minutes before the match finished.

Maurizio Sarri has no qualms with Cristiano Ronaldo's frustrations at being substituted and says Juventus must thank the superstar forward for attempting to play through the pain barrier.

Juve head coach Sarri again insisted Ronaldo - who reportedly left the Allianz Stadium before the final whistle - is struggling with a knee injury that is affecting his performance and believes his frustrated reactions are a result of that. "If he gets angry when he comes out this is part of the game", continued the Juventus coach. "All players who are trying to give their best will have at least five minutes of being annoyed when they are substituted, but a coach would in general be much more anxious if he didn't seem upset".

Fan sues Madonna, saying her concert starts too late
The Queen of Pop, who is now on her Madame X Tour , has been hit with a class-action lawsuit, which names her and Live Nation . He's now launched a class action suit after the singer's repeatedly been two hours late to the start of her concerts.

Juventus, chasing a ninth successive Serie A title, moved to 32 points, one point ahead of Inter Milan who briefly overtook them following their 2-1 home win over Verona on Saturday.

And with 13 minutes left to play, Dybala scored a brilliant individual goal which gave the Turin giants vital three points and a 1-0 win.

Misfiring striker Krzysztof Piatek headed wide from an unmarked position and Lucas Paqueta's looping header forced Wojciech Szczesny into a hard save.

Hakan Calhanoglu also tested Szczesny in the second half with a freekick before Dybala's moment of brilliance settled the match.

The Argentine almost struck again in stoppage time but was denied by Donnarumma.
