 Ronaldo Ends Wait For first Juventus Goal By Netting Twice

Cristiano Ronaldo has ended a 320-minute wait for his first Juventus goal by netting against Sassuolo on Sunday.

The Portuguese superstar secured a €100m  move to Turin over the summer after opting to bring a nine-year stint with Real Madrid to a close.

He arrived in Italy as one of the most prolific marksmen of all time, but has had to be patient in a bid to open his account for the Bianconeri.

That wait has now come to a close, with Ronaldo finding the target in his fourth Serie A outing.

His barren run had stretched beyond the 300-minute mark during a goalless first-half at the Allianz Stadium, but he did not have to wait long to make his mark after the interval.

In the 50th minute, he found himself in the right place at the right time to prod home.

Sassuolo made a mess of clearing their lines from a corner, with the ball rebounding kindly to Ronaldo off the post for the 33-year-old to tap into an empty net.

A trademark celebration was quickly wheeled out, with a clear sense of relief as Ronaldo went through a well-rehearsed routine.
