Cristiano Ronaldo finally got his Juventus goal tally up and running during their 2-1 victory against Sassuolo.

The Portuguese superstar had gone four matches without a goal before Juve’s clash with Sassuolo - but he was always going to end his goal drought sooner rather than later, wasn’t he?

His first was the scrappy, fortunate goal he needed.

The ball bounced around the Sassuolo box from a Juve corner and, after the ball had hit the post, Ronaldo was left with an easy task of tapping the ball home.

Cue Ronaldo’s trademark celebration.

Shortly afterward, the 33-year-old was celebrating once again after firing in a left-footed strike into the far corner.

Ronaldo finally broke his Juventus drought with a brace

Sassuolo did pull a goal back but the Old Lady held on for another win.

However, despite Ronaldo getting off the mark, he might not be making headlines in Italy.

That’s thanks to teammate Douglas Costa.

Costa completely lost his head and launched a one-man attack on Federico Di Francesco.

Before the goal, Costa produced a terrible tackle - which involved an elbow - on the opponent and then, rather incredibly headbutted him in front of the referee.

Somehow he wasn’t sent off for that.

He was sent off when he was caught disgustingly spitting in Francesco’s face though.

And football fans from around the world want him banned for a very long time.

That’s just shocking. There's simply no place for that in football - or anywhere in life.

Costa can surely expect a very hefty ban from Serie A officials.

And Ronaldo may not be too impressed that everyone will be talking about Costa's terrible behaviour, rather than his match-winning performance and his brace.
