His second was more of a typical "Ronaldo goal" - Juventus broke quickly which lead to a four attackers running at two defenders as the five-time Ballon d'Or victor sprinted ahead of Emre Can who carried the ball up the field. Ronaldo doubled his tally shortly after in the Bianconeri's victory on Sunday. He is up and running and his three-and-a-half game drought (!) is over.

In the 50th minute Sassuolo defender Gian Marco Ferrari could only head a Juventus corner onto the left post and Ronaldo was waiting to volley in a rebound from less than two yards out.

Ronaldo scored 44 goals for Real Madrid last season including 15 in the Champions League on the way to a third straight title.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor broke his duck just days after Juventus manager Max Allegri backed him to find form against Sassuolo.
