Juventus 2-1 Sassuolo: Cristiano Ronaldo scores first Serie A goals

Melissa Satta joked about the Portuguese star's relevance in Serie A following his recent move to Juventus

It took the five-time Ballon d'Or victor 320 minutes and 27 shots to finally get off the mark for his new club, and it is unlikely he will ever score a more simple goal in his illustrious career the his first for Juve. Ronaldo ran to the corner flag with his arms outstretched and displaying a huge grin.

"Then the other team gets back into the game, some players get irritated and that sort of thing happens".

I was a little bit anxious as expectations were high.

It took Ronaldo four games and 28 shots to get off the mark, but it was only going to be a matter of time before he stamped his brand on Italian football. "My teammates are helping me hugely to adapt to this new league".

"I don't expect Ronaldo to do more or less than what he did in the first three games", said Allegri. "I'm happy for him".

Unspectacular though it may have been, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's first goal delivered a palpable sense of relief around the Allianz Stadium, where the hosts had struggled to create chances against their in-form visitors.

I can't confirm that Costa spit into Di Francesco's mouth, but it sure looks like he did.




After swinging an elbow at Di Francesco, he headbutted him right in front of the referee and then spat in the forward's face.

Video of the incident stunned football fans and pundits, and sparked an angry reaction from Costa's manager, Massimiliano Allegri.

Juventus, chasing an eighth successive Serie A title, have 12 points, three ahead of Napoli. It was Sassuolo's first defeat of the season. Earlier, AS Roma squandered a two-goal lead when they were held 2-2 at home by lowly Chievo.

But Ronaldo finally got off the mark after almost 320 minutes of league action during the Bianconeri's 2-1 win against Sassuolo.

Do YOU think Dybala deserves to be a regular in Juventus' starting XI this season?

The celebration did not match the goal, admittedly, but the occasion probably did.
