Cristiano Ronaldo, who averaged more than a goal per game over his past nine seasons at Real Madrid, according to Goal.com stats, has now played three full matches from his new club, Juventus, and Ronaldo is still looking for his first Italian Serie A goal — a historic moment that he hopes will happen on Sunday against the surprise team of Serie A so far this season, U.S. Sassuolo Calcio, in a match that will live stream from Turin.
Juventus, who appear the runaway favorites for their eighth consecutive Scudetto after the $117 million transfer signing, as Business Insider reported, with the 33-year-old Ronaldo, have grabbed the full nine points from their first three games this season.
But Sassuolo, who placed 11th on the Serie A table in 2017/2018, has nearly equalled that start, with just a draw against Cagliari on Matchday Two blemishing their record. As Serie A closes out the fourth week of play with its slate of Sunday matches, Sassuolo sits in third place on the table behind only Juve and Napoli.
But Coach Roberto De Zerbi admits ahead of the match that he has no plans drawn up that could help his side knock the mighty Juve off their lofty perch, according to the Italian sports site Calcio Mercato.

Having said that, it doesn’t mean we are already beaten. We’ll give it our all.”
“We are in a positive moment and we are going to Turin to try to continue with our performance and results,” Sassuolo’s Ghanian midfielder Joseph Alfred Duncan said hopefully, according to Goal.com “We’ll go there with humility and be compact. We know what our qualities are, we must try to do what the coach asks us.”
