Douglas Costa issues apology for vile spitting incident against Sassuolo

His first goal for Juventus was probably the easiest of his career as he pounced on a mistake to grab the opener. Ronaldo doubled his tally shortly after as the Bianconeri beat Sassuolo 2-1 in Serie A on Sunday. "We had the game where we wanted it, but we started playing as individuals and not as a team". He then jumped in the air as he turned back to the field and waited to be embraced by nearly all his teammates, who ran over to celebrate with him. "I appreciate my teammates, who were helping me as much as they could to adapt to the Italian league".

"Perfectionist? I missed a few goals, but this is football, the most important thing is to win". That's life, I'm working well.

"Even if I just gave him two passes, he would score two goals and that's why he's one of the greatest footballers who's ever lived".

The Portuguese legend had failed to find the net in his first three Serie A appearances - a goal drought by his own lofty standards.

"It's only right that he is fined, and he certainly will be", Allegri told reporters.

As Sassuolo tried to rush the ball back to the halfway line so that they could resume the game, Costa and Di Francesco clashed again.

But there was controversy in Turin as Juventus winger Douglas Costa was sent off late on after being caught on camera spitting at Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco. The Brazil worldwide risks a lengthy ban.

After the win, Juventus maintains its Serie A lead with 12 points, having a three-point advantage ahead of second-placed Napoli.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Bryan Cristante put Roma, who lost to AC Milan before the worldwide break, firmly in command at half-time.

The Portuguese star chose not to play for his country during the latest global break to dedicate time to adapt to his new club following his £100million summer switch from Real Madrid.

Lazio won 1-0 at Empoli in Sunday's other game.
