Juventus' Douglas Costa Caught Spitting Into Opponent's Mouth

16 September 2018

Costa came in for fierce criticism from Allegri following the 2-1 win, which also saw Cristiano Ronaldo break his scoring duck for his new club with both Juventus goals. He is up and running and his three-and-a-half game drought (!) is over.

"Cristiano worked well and I think he will score", the coach revealed at the pre-match press conference.

His second Juventus goal marked the 400th league goal of his career, a tally spread across spells at Real Madrid (311), Manchester United (84), Sporting CP (3) and the Old Lady (2).

The Portuguese added another in the 65th minute when he finished off a counter-attack by drilling a low-angled shot beyond Andrea Consigli and into the far corner with his left foot.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor was denied a hat-trick by a fine save from Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli, while he also miss-hit a clear opportunity late on.

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

Sassuolo scored their only goal of the game in stoppage time, with Douglas Costa sent off for the home side soon after.

Embroiled in a heated discussion with Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco, the Brazilian winger proceeded to spit into the mouth of Di Francesco before walking away.
