Juventus' Douglas Costa Caught Spitting Into Opponent's Mouth

It was a bad mistake’ – Douglas Costa apologies for spitting in opponent’s face

Ronaldo added a second 15 minutes later when he finished off a swift counterattack with a precise finish into the bottom right corner.

Cristiano Ronaldo finally scored his first goal since moving from Real Madrid to Italy when he twice bagged in Juventus' Serie A win against Sassuolo in the Old Lady's 2-1 win on Sunday afternoon, however the five time Ballon d'Or victor wasn't the main talking point.

Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates scoring their first goal against Sassuolo in Turin September 16, 2018. "I also apologise to my team-mates, who are always with me in attractive and bad moments", he wrote.

Embroiled in a heated discussion with Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco, the Brazilian winger proceeded to spit into the mouth of Di Francesco before walking away.

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. It might not be much but Ronaldo has finally found his mark!

Ronaldo's last act for Real was lifting the Champions League trophy in Kiev after beating Liverpool 3-1 in the final before he dropped the bombshell in a pitch-side interview that he had chose to leave Madrid.

"Sometimes we don't control our anxiety, but I knew my teammates and I were working well together and the goals were going to come", he continued.

Bills safety Vontae Davis quits, retires at halftime of game against Chargers
Buffalo signed Davis to a one-year, $2.5 million deal in February that included a $1.5 million signing bonus. Davis played just five games in 2017 with the Indianapolis Colts before suffering a torn groin muscle.

Allegri congratulated Ronaldo for breaking his duck before their trip to Spain to play Valencia in the Champions League next Wednesday.

"I'm still adapting to the Italian league".

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.

However fans still weren't happy as they complained that the former Bayern Munich man hadn't apologised to Di Francesco for spitting at him.

But Valter Birsa reduced the deficit shortly after the break with a magnificent curled strike and Chievo equalized seven minutes from time when Mariusz Stepinski fired in a rebound.

Lazio won 1-0 at newly promoted Empoli, while Torino drew 1-1 at Udinese.
