Allegri said: "It's only right that he [Costa] is fined, and he certainly will be".

Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo completed the blockbuster transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus, his first goal for the Old Lady of Turin was highly awaited.

The winger could be slapped with a three-match ban that would include Juventus' clash with Serie A title rivals Napoli on September 29.

In the only negative note for Juventus, midfielder Douglas Costa was sent off in stoppage time after spitting in the face of Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco, from point-blank range.

"But it doesn't matter, because this absolutely must not happen. The one thing we must avoid is rising to provocation", said Allegri.

"The Portuguese legend hasn't scored a goal yet for the Bianconeri but he still has a lot of time to recuperate and he has been playing well". "This wound up the opposition, who then reacted badly and you get to situations like Douglas Costa".

Ronaldo joined the Bianconeri for €100 million this summer but failed to score in his first three matches despite registering nearly 27 shots. "We mustn't lose our heads, even if these results destabilise us".

"It's human to be like that, sometimes we can't control our anxiety", he said.

The game should have been remembered for Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his first two Juventus goals, but villain Costa's late antics took the attention away from his team-mate.
