Juventus forward and 5-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo achieved a new milestone as the Portuguese star scored both goals in a 2-1 win over Sassuolo that saw him scoring 400th goal mark in league football, on Sunday.
The game should've really been remembered for Cristiano Ronaldo's first competitive goals.
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.
Ronaldo could easily have had a hat-trick but missed two more good chances and had a penalty appeal turned down. And indeed they went on to score, with Khouma Babacar heading in a consolation goal.
However, while his statement apologised to "all Juventus fans for this misleading reaction" as well as his team-mates, there was no reference to Di Francesco himself.
The five-time Ballon d'Or victor was denied a hat trick by a fine save from Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli, while he also mishit a clear opportunity late on.
'I want to make clear that this isolated conduct has nothing to do with what I've shown throughout my career'.
Cristiano Ronaldo admitted there was "a bit of anxiety" following his move from Real Madrid to Juventus, where he finally opened his account on Sunday.
Allegri congratulated Ronaldo for breaking his duck before their trip to Spain to play Valencia in the Champions League next Wednesday.
"I'm very happy, we started well".
A second-half goal by Krzysztof Piatek gave Genoa a 1-0 win over Bologna in another match marred by ugly scenes after the visitors had Erick Pulgar sent off for a shocking tackle on Romulo.
Inter captain Mauro Icardi's nightmare start to the season mirrors his team's who have not kicked off the season so badly for seven years with just four points from four games.
Ronaldo's last act for Real was lifting the Champions League trophy in Kiev after beating Liverpool 3-1 in the final before he dropped the bombshell in a pitch-side interview that he had chose to leave Madrid.
