Juventus were not sure of the full 3 points even 10 minutes before the end of the scheduled time. Juve supporters were worried whether Sassuolo would snatch 1 point from them.
But in the 72nd to 92nd minutes, Juventus won 3–1 thanks to goals from Aaron Ramsey and Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese star also set a great record by scoring a goal in this match of Serie A last night.

Sassuolo midfielder Pedro Obiang was shown a red card for attacking the opponent in the added time of the first half.
Danilo put Juventus ahead with a long-range shot in the 50th minute after the break. 6 minutes later, Gregory Defreel equalized for Sasulo with a great finish.

In the second half, Sassuolo was waiting for Andrea Pirlo’s team to counter-attack. They did not score from a long-range shot by Italian forward Francesco Caputo.
Paolo Dibala was not attacked by Juve after the break. The Argentine star was forced to leave the field in the 43 minutes due to a leg injury.
Ramsey put Juventus ahead in the 82 minutes. The Welsh midfielder tapped from Frabotta’s cross on the left. Ronaldo scored the last goal of the match from Danilo’s long-range pass in the 2nd minute of added time.
