midfielder Sami Khedira saw the funny side after team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo
absolutely hammered the ball into his face during Sunday's victory over Sassuolo.
Juve went 11 points clear at the top of Serie A
with a convincing 3-0 victory, Khedira and Ronaldo both finding the net before Emre Can added a late third.
However, Khedira may have been left with a headache this morning after what was a highly amusing incident.

With his side leading 1-0 in the 60th minute, Ronaldo attempted to control an aerial pass from Mario Mandzukic on the edge of the box but the ball hit his hand.
Realising the handball had brought an end to the attack, the Portuguese forward proceeded to put his foot through the ball in frustration.
Unfortunately for Khedira, who was standing just a few yards away, it went flying straight into his face, leaving him writhing on the floor in pain.
The German clearly forgave his team-mate, however, as he took to Twitter to joke about the moment following the game.
'Back to winning ways with a great team performance in Sassuolo,' he wrote. 'Thanks for the headache tonight @Cristiano.'
