Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has millions of fans across the globe and the Portuguese talisman came face-to-face with one during his side's game against Sassuolo on Sunday night.

Ronaldo, who was recently dropped from the new cover for Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, has used the sí - it means "yes" in Spanish, by the way - celebration since his days at Real Madrid, along with when he famously yelled it after he won the Ballon d'Or in 2015.

The forward has been a hit at the Bianconeri since his arrival from Real Madrid, where he spent nine successful years.

When it comes to the Dybalamask, the 25-year-old Argentine forward revealed the meaning behind the celebration back in 2017.

Often winning by a solitary goal in the first half of the season, Juventus has now scored three goals in two straight matches.

Juventus have had a couple of shaky games in the last few weeks, which include a 3-0 loss to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia. With this win, the side extended their lead at the top of the table by 11 points as Napoli drew against Fiorentina.

The German dusted himself off to continue, but was substituted five minutes later by Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri and replaced by Rodrigo Bentancur.

Juve were given an early scare when Filip Djuricic was allowed a clear run into the box where Wojciech Szczesny brought him down, but the referee judged that the goalkeeper's challenge was legal after consulting VAR. "They're one of the teams with the most possession in their own half in the league".

"Ronaldo and Dybala can certainly play together and they will do, but we need everyone to work hard in order to keep the team balanced", said Allegri.

"They were struggling to cope with (Federico) Bernardeschi in the hole - he was playing well and they couldn't read his passes".

Sassuolo then was able to create another good chance in the 55th minute with a move by Domenico Berardi after a serious error by Szczesny, but that fizzled and Juventus scored its second goal in the 70th minute on a powerful header by Cristiano.
