Juventus stayed top of Serie A with a 1-0 win over AC Milan on Sunday after Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted for the second game in a row and walked straight down the tunnel, clearly unhappy at the decision.

Paulo Dybala scored the only goal in the 77th minute after replacing Ronaldo in the 55th, the Portugal captain’s earliest substitution since he joined Juve at the start of last season.

Despite producing a lacklustre display, Ronaldo gave coach Maurizio Sarri a dirty look, muttered something under his breath and walked straight down the tunnel.

Ronaldo was also replaced during Wednesday’s Champions League match at Lokomotiv Moscow when he again looked unhappy at the decision, although Sarri said it was to avoid risking injury as the 34-year-old had complained of knee and thigh problems.

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.

Milan are down in 14th place on 13 points.
