4 fantastic Cristiano Ronaldo stats after his first two Serie A goals

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

Costa will serve a suspension for spitting in the face of Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco on Sunday, also headbutting and elbowing the attacker during the clash.

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.

The 33-year-old went three games without scoring for the Turin-based side before the game but he was on hand to score an easy tap-in five minutes into the second half, before scoring a second.

"I have played for a few clubs, but to have my own song is a unique thing for me", Ozil added.

In his fourth game with Juventus, CR7's hard work over the last worldwide break seemed to pay off as he led his new club towards their fourth successive victory in Serie A, giving them a bigger boost towards their gruelling campaign in the UEFA Champions League.

His team-mate Douglas Costa was sent off for spitting in another player's mouth.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had been concerned about Firmino when he spoke to the media immediately after the Spurs game. We were denied a penalty at the end, which replays show was clear, but I won't hide behind that.

Costa wrote on Instagram: "You don't know what he said to me".

"Cristiano worked well and I think today he will score and break the ice", Allegri told a press conference ahead of Sunday's game against second-placed Sassuolo.

The goals were his first for the club.

"I don't like the pressure that is put on him because if he plays tomorrow and doesn't do so well, he will be massacred (by the media)".

With his first brace in Serie A, Ronaldo has gained his 400th league goal making him only the fifth player in history to reach such milestone.

The second goal, in particular, was a lovely one, and it will terrify teams around Europe that the so-called drought ended just as the Champions League returns.

Ronaldo admits that the Champions League group Juventus have been drawn in is hard with Manchester United, Valencia and Young Boys but he says "it's the competition that I like the most and I hope we can a lot of luck in it." .
