Cristiano Ronaldo Jr has been stealing his father's thunder in Turin as he once again scored for Juventus U9s on Sunday.

Khouma Babacar pulled one back for Sassuolo in the final minute before VAR ensured that Juventus finished the game a man down after Douglas Costa was sent off for spitting at Federico Di Francesco.

The Brazil worldwide then appeared to spit directly into Di Francesco's mouth from point blank range and aimed a headbutt at his opponent.
