Juve's Ronaldo off the mark, Costa dismissed for spitting

Allegri said he could see that Ronaldo was excited to finally get the first goal out of the way.

Khouma Babacar headed one back in the 90th minute but the game ended in ugly scenes as Costa became involved in a running feud with Sassoulo midfielder Federico Di Francesco.

"I also apologise to my teammates, who are always by my side, in good and bad times".

"I really wanted to score these first goals and I'm happy to have found the net", Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

Both sides have made ideal starts to their domestic campaigns with five wins, PSG thrashing St Etienne 4-0 at home on Friday and Liverpool enjoying a convincing 2-1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur.

Gareth Bale says Real Madrid work together more as a collective unit without former talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, after the Portuguese forward moved to Juventus in the close season.

Ronaldo left Madrid this summer after helping to guide the club to their third consecutive Champions League trophy.

Allegri's men went into this game having failed to hit top gear in their opening three matches, but as Ronaldo got into his stride in the second half the stadium began to buzz.

Of course I was looking at what he was doing, even something as simple as just looking at his shooting technique . The forward celebrated his 200th appearance for Arsenal with a goal in their 2-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.


"We lacked that killer instinct".

"Maybe he was irritated at a foul before, but it doesn't matter, because these things should absolutely not happen".

Bale is Madrid's key weapon as the Champions League starts again this week, with Real facing Roma on Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu.

But it might offer an explanation as to why Costa lost his head.

Inter Milan slipped to 14th with a shock 1-0 home defeat by Parma yesterday ahead of their European opener against Tottenham at the San Siro.
