Manager Massimiliano Allegri claims Douglas Costa fell for provocation

Allegri condemned his player after the 2-1 victory, insisting the behaviour was unacceptable.

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first competitive goal for Italian champions Juventus and then added a second in Sunday's fourth Serie A game of the season, against Sassuolo in Turin.

His barren run had stretched beyond the 300-minute mark during a goalless first-half at the Allianz Stadium, but he did not have to wait long to make his mark after the interval.

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly has a clause in his contract which guarantees him a five million euros bonus if he scores a goal a game.

Sassuolo make a mess of clearing their lines from a corner, with the ball rebounding kindly to Ronaldo off the post for the 33-year-old to tap into an empty net.

Florence punishes Carolinas with torrential rain, flooding; 8 dead
Zooming out to the full projection, shown above, the core of the storm is slated to enter North Carolina around 2 p.m. There have been seven storm-related deaths since Florence, then a Category-1 hurricane, made landfall Friday morning.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor has also set a new milestone in his distinguished career by hitting the 400-goal mark in his club career.

Sassuolo did pull a goal back in second-half stoppage time, with Khouma Babacar heading home, but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation as Juve hung on for the win.

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

This is going to be a huge story in world football. Douglas Costa spits in Federico Di Francesco's mouth during the #Juve and #Sassuolo game.
