Cristiano Ronaldo admits to anxiety before first Juventus goals

Sassuolo pulled one back in added time via Khouma Babacar but Juve held on.

After failing to score in his first three official matches with Juventus, it was only a matter of time before Cristiano Ronaldo went off and regained his scoring touch.

Although it would appear that Costa could be facing a lengthy ban, few are convinced such an outcome is likely.

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 think he deserves it", said Allegri.

Douglas Costa had been booked following the visitors' goal, and was sent off on the final whistle as VAR elected to upgrade the punishment.

"I also apologize to my teammates, who are always with me in handsome and bad moments".

"I really wanted to score, so I'm really happy", Ronaldo told reporters after the game. I made a frightful mistake, I'm aware of that and I wanted to say sorry to everyone for it.

But struggling with a muscular problem he has failed to find the net in the three games he has played so far.

'I make it clear that this isolated attitude does not correspond to what I have always shown in my career'.

"The referee blew the whistle right when the ball was going into the goal without even waiting for the action to be completed".

A second-half goal by Krzysztof Piatek gave Genoa a 1-0 win over Bologna in another match marred by ugly scenes after the visitors had Erick Pulgar sent off for a shocking tackle on Romulo, sparking a scuffle involving a number of players.

Juve made it four wins from four in Serie A despite leaving the likes of Costa, Juan Cuadrado, Giorgio Chiellini and Miralem Pjanic out of the starting line-up, leaving coach Massimiliano Allegri with a strong and healthy squad to pick from for the start of the club's latest UEFA Champions League campaign.

The Italian champions are among the favourites to win this year's competition following their signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, but a good start will be needed at the Mestalla.
