Cristiano Ronaldo scores first goal for Juventus against Sassuolo 2-1 lead

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner,Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first competitive goal for Italian after 320 minutes.

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.

The champions Juventus tapped in on the line after a goalmouth scramble on 50 minutes, and added a second 15 minutes later to give the reigning seven-time champions a 2-1 lead.

His barren run had stretched beyond the 300-minute mark during a goalless first-half at the Allianz Stadium, but he did not have to wait long to make his mark after the interval.

Cristiano Ronaldo thanked his Juventus team-mates for helping him through a dry spell after he scored both goals in a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo.

The 33-year-old failed to find the net in his first three Serie A matches following a €112million transfer from Real Madrid in July before finally breaking his duck on Sunday.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri had said before the match he was not concerned that Ronaldo has failed to find the net despite 23 shots at goal in the team’s three wins out of three so far this season.

Juve will expect there to be plenty more efforts to come, with Ronaldo having recovered from slow starts during his time in Madrid to consistently blast past the 40-goal mark.
