Cristiano Ronaldo scores his first Serie A goal for Juventus

XtraTime Web Desk: Portuguese sensation Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal for Italian giants Juventus after his transfer from Real Madrid this season against Sassuolo in Turin today.

The 33 year old footballer opened the account on 50 minutes and scored the second one after 15 minutes again to give the defending champions a lead of 2-0.

Sassuolo pulled one back in the second half through Khouma Babacar, but Juventus triumphed 2-1.




Coach Massimiliano Allegri had said before the match he was not concerned that Ronaldo has failed to find the net, despite 23 shots at goal in the team’s three wins out of three so far this season.

“I don’t expect Ronaldo to do more or less than what he did in the first three games,” said Allegri.

“I believe tomorrow could be his day.”

Ronaldo scored 44 goals for Real Madrid last season, including 15 in the Champions League on the way to a third straight title.




Bolstered by five-time winner Ronaldo, Juventus begin their quest for the Champions League title which has eluded them in two decades in Valencia next Wednesday.




The Turin giants won the European title in 1985 and 1996, but finished runners-up twice in 2015 and 2017, under current coach Allegri.
