Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was full of praise for club-record signing Cristiano Ronaldo, who was on target yet again for the Serie A champions.

Ronaldo had a Champions League night to forget on Wednesday after he was given his marching orders away to Valencia after only 29 minutes for an off-the-ball clash with Jeison Murillo.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor had scored his first goals last week with a double in a 2-1 win over Sassuolo, before the 33-year-old was sent off in tears on Wednesday in a 2-0 Champions League win over Valencia.

"No one expected anything different from Cristiano, he will score so many goals and he is the least of our problems", Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini said.

Dybala has only started two of Juve's opening four Serie A games, the reigning champions making a flawless start to the campaign to be top of the table.

Petrol price crosses Rs 90 per litre mark in Mumbai
Diesel at IOC's outlets in Mumbai costs Rs 78.58 per litre, at HPCL's stations for Rs 78.67 and comes for Rs 78.67 at BPCL pumps. On Sunday, Kolkata again reached its all-time high price of diesel at Rs 75.82 as recorded on September 11.

'And that's what happened because to score a goal like that towards the end means that he has a mentality stronger than the others'. We were expecting a game like that. "Frosinone had conceded five to Sampdoria and we played down to 10 men for 70 minutes against Valencia [in the Champions League] on Wednesday".

'I'm happy with the way the lads kept working the ball towards Frosinone's area quickly and calmly.

"We could just sit there in front of the goal and hope the right cross comes in but that is not my philosophy of football".

Cristiano Ronaldo's late goal helped Juventus to maintain their ideal start to the Serie A season with a hard-fought 2-0 victory away to Frosinone on Sunday.
