Match Timeline

23’GOAL! Sassuolo 0-1 Juventus (Khedira)

GOAL! Juventus take the lead! Consigli’s poor clearance drops straight to Ronaldo on the edge of the box. The Portuguese international’s shot from distance is parried away by the Sassuolo goalkeeper, but Khedira is on hand to tap the ball in from close range on the rebound. 1-0.

53′ OFFSIDE! Ronaldo’s goal disallowed

DISALLOWED! The visitors once again break at pace and Bernardeschi spots the run of Ronaldo to his left. The Portuguese international rounds Consigli before firing the ball into the back of the net. The linesman, however, has his flag up for offside and the goal is ruled out.

55′ Berardi misses a golden chance!

GLORIOUS OPPORTUNITY! Following a long ball up field, Szczesny comes a long way out of his goal before slicing his attempted clearance. Berardi picks up the loose ball but just fails to place his effort inside the far post from 40 yards with Szczesny well out of his area.

70’GOAL! Sassuolo 0-2 Juventus (Ronaldo)

GOAL! Ronaldo makes it two! Juventus win a corner to the left off Sensi and Pjanic’s delivery is swung into a wonderful area for Ronaldo to attack and power into the top right corner beyond Consigli. 2-0.

86’GOAL! Sassuolo 0-3 Juventus (Can)

GOAL! Moments after coming on, Can makes it three! Dybala played the ball in field to Ronaldo who spotted the run of Can to his left and slid the ball into his path. The German took one touch before firing the ball into the bottom right corner. 3-0.
