Ronaldo scores first goal for Juventus

Juventus forward Douglas Costa has apologised following his sending off for spitting in Sunday's Serie A match against Sassuolo.

The football world was quick to laud Ronaldo on getting off the mark, former England worldwide turned presenter was unsurprisingly one of the first Gary Lineker labelling the 33-year-old as a "Prolific, prodigious professional" on his ever active Twitter account.

However, Juve held on to claim three points and their fourth win of the season. I made a disgusting mistake, I'm aware of that and I wanted to say sorry to everyone for it.

Allegri said he is keen to begin rotating his players with the Champions League set to begin next week, and with the exception of Blaise Matuidi, who made a pair of appearances for France, anyone who started twice while on global duty is not likely to play against Sassuolo.

Though Allegri felt Costa was provoked into his conduct late on at the Allianz Stadium, he also refused to use it as an excuse for the player's actions. We mustn't fall for provocation. I was surprised by his reaction.

"We have suffered a goal, a red card and a suspension which will be long".

"Was there any anxiety? Not on my part", said Allegri.

Sassuolo did see a bit more of the ball as the half drew to a close, but the score remained goalless as the sides entered the halftime break.

"Football has a way of evening things out and that was the story of the first goal, with the ball bouncing off the post and sitting up for him".
