  • Allegri: Cristiano Ronaldo worked well and I think he will score against Sassuolo

Cristiano Ronaldo on Sunday scored his first goal for Juventus in their fourth Serie A match against Sassuolo. He is up and running and his three-and-a-half game drought (!) is over.

Juventus star Douglas Costa is expected to be hit with a hefty ban after headbutting an opponent and then spitting in his mouth during Sunday's 2-1 win over Sassuolo.

Ronaldo opened the scoring in Turin with his 28th attempt on goal since completing a £99m move from Real Madrid in the summer, pouncing on a defensive mix up to tap in from two yards out.

'I really wanted to score these first goals and I'm happy to have found the net'.


The first half ended goalless, but in the second half, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal for Juventus in the 50th minute.

The hosts went agonsingly close in the 38th minute when Sassuolo shot-stopper Andrea Consigli pulled off a stunning save to stop Pol Lirola from deflecting the ball into his own net.

The former Bayern Munich winger was not blown up for a strong challenge on Federico Di Francesco in the build-up to the visitor's goal and appeared to elbow him as he attempted to get back to his feet.

Juventus, who are seeking a record-extending eighth successive Serie A title, are the only team in the division still with a ideal record.
