With Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench, the champions struggled to score real openings until Adrien Rabiot scored a rare Serie A goal and shot at the top of the net from an acute angle six minutes before half-time

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic almost brought Lazio back into the lead, but was rejected by the crossbar and Juve was able to score in the 57th Minute get a nice Morata hit

Three minutes later, Morata shot home from the penalty spot after Aaron Ramsey was fouled to secure a win that put Juve to 52 points, one behind AC Milan

Afterwards, Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo said he had reached an agreement with Ronaldo in the week before the game on Saturday

“He came from eight or nine games in a row, we made an agreement [so Ronaldo could rest] during the week, it was already planned,” said Pirlo, whose side will try to close a 2-1 deficit their champions overcome the league’s final round of 16 against Porto on Wednesday, said Sky Sport Italia

“Cristiano is an added value, the boys did what they had to do tonight without him Cristiano has already scored 20 goals, it was normal for other goals to be scored”

Lazio looked good to lead in the first half before Rabiot equalized, but the defense for Juve’s second was poor and Milinkovic-Savic’s clumsy duel with Ramsey to concede the penalty for the third goal was unnecessary / p>

“To win here you have to be perfect and we have done that in the past,” said Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi. “We had a good game, but with too many mistakes and Juve are not forgiving

A third loss in four league games hurt Lazio’s hopes for the top four Inzaghi’s men were seventh with 43 points, six behind fourth-placed Atalanta
