Juventus boss, Allegri reacts to Ronaldo's first goals for the club

Serie A- Juventus v U.S Sassuolo

Serie A- Juventus v U.S Sassuolo

Costa who had earlier been shown a yellow card in the 90th minute again was involved in the build-up to the visitor's consolation goal after Cristiano Ronaldo broke his Serie A goals drought with two goals.

The 33-year-old added to his three goals for Sporting Lisbon, 84 with Manchester United and 311 for Real Madrid in a total of 517 league matches.

Costa, who faces a lengthy ban, was dismissed for spitting at Federico Di Francesco after a running feud in which the Brazilian also elbowed and head-butted the Sassuolo player.

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

Costa, 28, later posted an apology to Juventus teammates and fans on his Instagram account, although he replied to one comment by saying that people did not know what Sassuolo winger Di Francesco had said to him to provoke his anger. "I make it clear that this isolated attitude does not correspond to what I have always shown in my career".

'You just had to see the first three games and how close Ronaldo went to scoring.

"I really enjoyed playing with him because he made me better on the pitch and he's a great guy off it, too".

Unspectacular though it may have been, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's first goal delivered a palpable sense of relief around the Allianz Stadium, where the hosts had struggled to create chances against their in-form visitors. Let us know in the comments section below.

The Germany global also compared playing with Liverpool in the Premier League to playing in Italy.

The Italian football authorities are expected to review television footage of the match, including previous incidents between the players, before taking disciplinary action, which is expected to be confirmed on Tuesday.

Stephan El Shaarawy volleyed Roma in front in the 10th minute and Bryan Cristante doubled his team's advantage with his first goal for the club in the 29th.

Roma are ninth with five points from four games - already seven points adrift of Juventus - and also behind city rivals Lazio who won at Empoli with Marco Parolo scoring the only goal.
