  • VIDEO- Disgusting! Douglas Costa spits in opponent's mouth

Dybala's dip in form seemed to begin in April when a poor display in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid culminated in a red card for two bookable offences.

"It's normal that there was great expectations from me, but I'm working well and my team-mates help me adjust to Serie A".

Costa who had earlier been shown a yellow card in the 90th minute again was involved in the build-up to the visitor's consolation goal after Cristiano Ronaldo broke his Serie A goals drought with two goals.

Ronaldo now has 660 career goals scored for both club and country.

"I told myself that after being lucky enough to play with Lionel Messi in the national team, now I have the chance to be with Ronaldo in Juventus", he added.

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

Ronaldo is the joint-highest rated player on the game with Lionel Messi on 94 but Moberg joked about the fact that Ronaldo's physicality rating is lower than his. "I say sorry to all those who I have to say it to, because I did wrong", Costa wrote, according to reports in the Italian press.

"This is football. The important thing is that the team wins".

His second was a more typical Ronaldo finish - a driven effort across the goalkeeper - and the 33-year-old took to Twitter to share the joy of finally breaking his Juve duck. Will this be the start of a run for the five-time Balon d'Or victor?

Khouma Babacar pulled one goal back for Sassuolo and Brazilian forward, Douglas Costa was sent off, but the Italian Champions held on for the win.

Roma appeared to be coasting to a much-needed victory after defeat to AC Milan and a draw with Atalanta.
