The Serie A title holders will be looking to make it to a third final in five years, having lost to Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively in 2015 and 2017.

Ronaldo, who was rested for Portugal's friendly against Croatia and UEFA Nations League opener against Italy, will start the game at the Allianz Stadium.

"Of course there was a lot of attention surrounding it, but that's life".

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

It was Ronaldo who got the breakthroug goal in the 50th minute as a poor clearance landed at the feet of the Portuguese, who had the simple tasking slotting into an empty net.

"He came very close in his first three games", Allegri said at a news conference. It looked like he was absolutely desperate to score.

"He was a little too hasty and eager to score again today, but football takes away and it gives, and the ball bounced off the post and right into his path".

Sassuolo mustered a fightback and did get a consolation goal through Khouma Babacar in the 90th but it was not enough to deny Ronaldo and his teammates their fourth victory in as many games.

Just over 10 minutes after recording his first goal for the club, Ronaldo had his second. "I'm happy for him".

Douglas Costas has apologised to Juventus fans for spitting at Federico Di Francesco during a 2-1 win over Sassuolo on Sunday. The game was winding down, we had it in the bag and, instead, we stopped playing as a team, everyone wanted to dribble a bit. "We don't have an easy group, but I can't wait".
