LaLiga: Again, Gareth Bale speaks on Cristiano Ronaldo's exit

Ozil How Cristiano Ronaldo made me better at Real Madrid Douglas Costa issues apology for vile spitting incident against Sassuolo

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. He then jumped in the air as he turned back to the field and waited to be embraced by nearly all his teammates, who ran over to celebrate with him. "This is football, but winning is most important".

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 made a decision to leave Madrid. The Brazilian responded to that criticism, commenting on his own post to say, "You do not know what you are talking about, you do not know what Di Francesco told me".

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor was denied a hat trick by a fine save from Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli, while he also mishit a clear opportunity late on. "I thank my teammates who really helped me and allowed me to adapt to Italian football".

As Sassuolo pulled back a goal late on, Douglas Costa pulled Di Francesco to the ground in the build up to that ultimately inconsequential goal.

Victory helped Juve maintain their ideal start in Serie A, and while the match was marred by a Douglas Costa spitting incident, Ronaldo revealed his relief at rediscovering his goalscoring boots.

Douglas Costa issues apology for vile spitting incident against Sassuolo

So he apologises to the fans and his teammates, but not the player he spat at, Federico Di Francesco.

Juventus, which is seeking a record-extending eighth successive Serie A title, is the only team still with a ideal record.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Bryan Cristante put them 2-0 ahead in under half an hour, but Chievo hit back after the break as Valter Birsa curled in a delightful effort and Mariusz Stepinski levelled with seven minutes left.

The Juventus star is facing a huge ban for the shocking act after being sent off in his side's 2-1 win over Sassuolo.

Torino midfielder Soualiho Meite was hero and villain in his team's 1-1 draw at Udinese.
