Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first competitive goals for Juventus on Sunday, with a second-half double that ensured a 2-1 win over Sassuolo to make it four victories from as many Serie A games.

Cristiano Ronaldo left fans raving after opening his account for new side Juventus in the Italian Serie A. Of course, noone knows exactly what was said between the two Serie A players that enraged them so much but there is clearly still bad blood between the Sassuolo and Juventus man.

"I don't expect Ronaldo to do more or less than what he did in the first three games, everyone was waiting for Ronaldo and he set up (Mario) Mandzukic".

However, since Ronaldo's departure, Bale has become the centre-piece in Madrid's attack and seems to be thriving under Lopetegui's managerial leadership.

While Bale seems to be in dazzling form at the moment, Ronaldo has clearly struggled at Juventus.

The football world was quick to laud Ronaldo on getting off the mark, former England global turned presenter was unsurprisingly one of the first Gary Lineker labelling the 33-year-old as a "Prolific, prodigious professional" on his ever active Twitter account.

"Angry. Quite angry, to be honest", he said about starting the final on the bench.
"Obviously, I felt I deserved to start the game".

The relief and joy at scoring his first goal for his new club was evident on the player's face. "So yeah, I suppose it was hard to put the anger aside".

But Bale feels that with Ronaldo now gone, Madrid are more focussed on improving as a "unit" rather than exclusively relying on the 33-year-old's strengths. Facing a familiar foe in Valencia, The Portuguese superstar and the rest of I Bianconeri will be travelling to Estadio Mestalla with a lot of positivity in mind having strung four consecutive wins in the league.
