"Who is Cristiano? I only have eyes for Boateng.- Melissa

It took the former Real Madrid forward Ronaldo almost 320 minutes to score his first league goal for Juventus and he did it with the simplest of tap-ins.

The game should've really been remembered for Cristiano Ronaldo's first competitive goals.

After the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid's all-time highest goal scorer in Turin, Serie A giants Juventus have seen sales of official replica shirts increase by over 100 per cent this summer.

The Portuguese added another in the 65th minute when he finished off a counter-attack by drilling a low-angled shot beyond Andrea Consigli and into the far corner with his left foot.

"It's human to be like that, sometimes we can't control our anxiety", he said.

The incident occurred in the build up to Sassuolo's injury-time consolation goal in Juventus' 2-1 win, following a collision with Di Francesco.

Senegalese striker Khouma Babacar pulled a goal back for Sassuolo in injury-time as the side from Modena fell to their first defeat of the season.

Max Allegri's squad must now focus on the Champions League as it travels to Spain to face Valencia on Wednesday.

"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".

"It's the competition I love the most", Ronaldo said. "We mustn't lose our heads, even if these results destabilise us".

Costa said on Instagram: "I would like to apologise to all of Juventus fans for this misleading reaction in today's game".
