Cristiano Ronaldo finally found his goal scoring touch at his new club, Juventus as the Portuguese international bagged two crucial goals which helped La Vecchia Signora defeatead Sassuolo 2-1.
Failing to score in his previous three league fixtures, Ronaldo didn’t find things any easier in the first 45 minutes as Neroverdi put on a strong resilience on that match.
Things finally started to open up for Juve in the second half as CR7 got himself that precious first official goal on 50 minutes, lifting his team’s confidence even more.
The former Real Madrid star continue to prove his quality as on 65 minutes he added a second one to give put his side in a much comfortable situation.
Sassuolo never gave up though as they kept on plugging deep in search for goals and did manage to pull one back in stoppage time from Khouma Babacar’s effort.
Things got heated near the end as Juve saw themselves finishing the match with 10 men after Douglas Costa was sent off due to spitting incident, which will give the Brazilian more problems.
Nevertheless, there was not enough time for the away side to get themselves back into that match as Massimiliano Allegri’s men holding to their slender lead.
Meanwhile, in another match, AC Milan failed to take all three points against Cagliari as Rossoneri’s poor start of the match eventually costed them dearly.
Milan started the match poorly and found themselves trailing after just four minutes from Joao Pedro’s shot, which somehow found its way pass Gianluigi Donnaroma on the Diavolo Rosso’s goal.
Gennaro Gattuso’s men finally found their groove and started to control things, but can’t seem able to find that equalizing due too bad finishing and final passes.
Rossoneri continue their dominance after the break and finally got themselves back into the tie, thanks to their summer, Gonzalo Higuain.
Unfortunately, Milan couldn’t get that winning goal despite fully dominating that second period as they must settle for a point away from home.
