Georgina Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo Jr watch on as dad scores first goals for Juventus against Sassuolo

Cristiano Ronaldo bagged a tap-in before drilling home a counter-attack strike from Emre Can's through ball to put the Serie A winners 2-0 up against Sassuolo.


Georgina and Ron Jr shared a grin after watching Daddy do what he does best and put the ball in the back of the net.

In truth, Ronaldo should have bagged a hat-trick, but the pair were still proud after the 33-year-old's mini goal drought that lasted three games.

The away side did bag a last-minute consolation, but it was too little too late — despite Douglas Costa's late red card for spitting.

Ronaldo had struggled to find the net after over 300 minutes of football for Juventus.






But five minutes into the second-half, he made no mistake as Gianmarco Ferrari headed the ball against his own post, leaving the keeper stranded and Cristiano free a yard out.

Then 15 minutes later, he was on the end of Can's through ball, after the German ran from box to box on the counter attack.

In typical fashion, Ronaldo drilled the ball low and hard past Sassuolo keeper Andrea Consigli into the far corner for 2-0.

Costa landed himself in hot water late on though as he was shown a yellow card and then red for spitting at, elbowing and headbutting Sassuolo's Federico di Francesco.

Earlier this weekend, Georgina shared video footage of young Cristiano Jr firing in a stunning goal for Juventus' Under-9s team — while Ronaldo had yet, at the time, to score for the black and whites.
