Cristiano Ronaldo scores as Juventus defeat Sassuolo 2-1

16 September 2018

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

Juventus recorded their fourth successive Serie A win this afternoon with a 2-1 defeat of Sassuolo in Turin.

Ronaldo turned the ball into the net from two metres to give Juventus a 1-0 lead in the 50th minute after a Sassuolo defender headed the ball against his own post and the rebound left the Portugal forward with an empty net.

Ronaldo added a second 15 minutes later when he finished off a swift counterattack with a precise finish into the bottom right corner.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor broke his duck just days after Juventus manager Max Allegri backed him to find form against Sassuolo.
