Douglas Costa fined and banned for three match ban.

The Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, said the winger Douglas Costa will be fined by the club after he was sent off for spitting at a Sassuolo opponent on Sunday, marring a 2-1 Serie A win in which Cristiano scored his first goals for the club.

Ronaldo needed three-and-a-half games to break his duck for Juventus, but Allegri said he never had any doubts about the Portugal forward.

The first goal was a gift as a Sassuolo defender headed the ball onto the post and the rebound landed right at Ronaldo’s feet, leaving him with the easiest of tap-ins.

Costa, who faces a lengthy ban, was dismissed for spitting at Federico Di Francesco after a running feud in which the Brazilian also elbowed and head-butted the Sassuolo player.
