Ronaldo gets off the mark for Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his first goal for Juventus on 16 September 2018.

Brazilian winger Costa already looked to have lost his composure after aiming an elbow and a headbutt moments earlier but the worst was to come as he spat directly at Di Francesco from inches away.

It was, however, a spitting offence that saw him deservedly receive his marching orders and he can now expect there to be serious repercussions.

Ronaldo, 33, scored his first goals in the Italian top-flight in the 2-1 victory over Sassuolo, as the champions held on to a crucial three points after going down to ten men.

"Sometimes we can't control our anxiety, but I'm happy".

As Sassuolo pulled back a goal late on, Douglas Costa pulled Di Francesco to the ground in the build up to that ultimately inconsequential goal.

Victory helped Juve maintain their ideal start in Serie A, and while the match was marred by a Douglas Costa spitting incident, Ronaldo revealed his relief at rediscovering his goalscoring boots. "My teammates are helping me hugely to adapt to this new league". "I had a little anxiety [over the first goal], but this is football and the most important thing is winning". We had the game where we wanted it, but we started playing as individuals and not as a team'.

Allegri, meanwhile, said he knew was happy for Ronaldo to get a goal at last.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri believes Cristiano Ronaldo will score his first Serie A goal against Sassuolo on Sunday.

Allegri said: "It's only right that he [Costa] is fined, and he certainly will be".

The second goal, in particular, was a lovely one, and it will terrify teams around Europe that the so-called drought ended just as the Champions League returns.

"I have a lot of players and a big squad and someone has to be left out", Allegri said.
