Juventus vs. Sassuolo - Football Match Report

Juventus club-record signing Cristiano Ronaldo finally opened his account with a brace as the Serie A champions defeated Sassuolo on Sunday afternoon.

His second was more of a typical "Ronaldo goal" - Juventus broke quickly which lead to a four attackers running at two defenders as the five-time Ballon d'Or victor sprinted ahead of Emre Can who carried the ball up the field.

"I expect nothing more, and nothing less than what he did in the first three games".

Former Liverpool star Emre Can provided the assist that gave Cristiano Ronaldo the chance to score the second goal for Juventus in the 65th minute.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor was denied a hat-trick by a fine save from Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli, while he also miss-hit a clear opportunity late on.

In a insane end to the game, the Bayern winger produced a poor tackle mere seconds before Sassuolo pulled one back in stoppage time at the Allianz Stadium.

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

In the only negative note for Juventus, midfielder Douglas Costa was sent off in stoppage time after spitting in the face of Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco, from point-blank range.
