BREAKING NEWS: Ronaldo scores maiden Juventus goal in Serie A

Cristiano Ronaldo’s wait for his first Juventus goal ended when he tapped in a straightforward opener against Sassuolo in Serie A – and he quickly added a second on Sunday.

The 33-year-old Portugal superstar poked home at point-blank range to break the deadlock five minutes into the second half at Allianz Stadium.

It was an impossible chance to pass up after Sassuolo defender Gianmarco Ferrari bizarrely headed against his own upright, with the ball kindly breaking to a relieved Ronaldo.

The highly anticipated moment came in his fourth Juve appearance and with his 28th attempt in Serie A, the same number it took him to get off the mark for Real Madrid in LaLiga last term.

And he needed only a further 15 minutes to make it a brace, driving a fine left-footed strike across goalkeeper Andrea Consigli to double the home side’s advantage in their bid for a fourth straight victory.
