In the end, it couldn’t have been any easier for Cristiano Ronaldo. It took the former Real Madrid forward nearly 320 minutes to score his first league goal for Juventus and he did it with the simplest of tap-ins. Ronaldo doubled his tally shortly after as the Bianconeri beat Sassuolo 2-1 in Serie A on Sunday. It was Ronaldo’s fourth league match for Juventus since his Serie A record 112 million euro move from Madrid and he appeared relieved after breaking his duck in the 50th minute. Substitute Khouma Babacar pulled one back for Sassuolo in the final minute.
Juventus, which is seeking a record-extending eighth successive Serie A title, is the only team still with a perfect record.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s Roma threw away a two-goal lead as tailenders Chievo snatched a 2-2 draw in the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday to deliver a blow to the side from the capital. Napoli got back to winning on Saturday with Lorenzo Insigne scoring the only goal against Fiorentina.
But Inter Milan’s woes were compounded with a shock 1-0 defeat to Parma.
