Juventus to fine winger Douglas Costa for spitting incident - Max Allegri

Cristiano Ronaldo notched the first two goals of his Juventus career on Sunday, scoring first in the 50th minute of Juventus' match against Sassuolo, and again in the 64th minute.

Sassuolo pulled one back in added time via Khouma Babacar and Douglas Costa was sent off but the hosts held on.

Douglas Costas has apologised to Juventus fans for spitting at Federico Di Francesco during a 2-1 win over Sassuolo on Sunday.

"Football has a way of evening things out and that was the story of the first goal, with the ball bouncing off the post and sitting up for him".

The Portuguese superstar secured a €100 million (£89m/$116m) move to Turin over the summer after opting to bring a nine-year stint with Real Madrid to a close.

Costa was dismissed for spitting at Di Francesco after a running feud in which the Brazilian also elbowed and head-butted the Sassuolo player.

Juventus, chasing an eighth successive Serie A title, have 12 points, three ahead of Napoli.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor broke his duck just days after Juventus manager Max Allegri backed him to find form against Sassuolo. "I'm happy for him".

Though Costa will miss at least the next few domestic matches for Juventus, the Brazilian worldwide will be available for selection when the Old Lady face Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday.
