If Cristiano Ronaldo is to score an average of a goal per game this season, then a "special" clause will be unlocked.

The double proved to be the match victor for Juve, who did concede in extra time when Khouma Babacar pulled a consolation goal back for the "Neroverdi" moments after Douglas Costa was sent off for the home side, who maintain their 100% start to the season with three wins from three matches.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri had said before the match he was not concerned that Ronaldo has failed to find the net despite 23 shots at goal in the team's three wins out of three so far this season.

Juventus forward Douglas Costa has apologised to the club's fans after he was sent off for spitting at Federico Di Francesco on Sunday.
