Cristiano Ronaldo starts his journey with Juventus in style

XtraTime Web Desk: In a friendly match against Juventus’ Primavera team Portuguese star forward and Juventus new signing Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal today.

The Portugal star joined Juve from Real Madrid in July in a €112million deal, ending a nine-year association with Los Blancos after winning three successive Champions League titles.




And in his first unofficial outing, he took just eight minutes to make the difference, latching on to a pass in behind the Primavera team’s defence and emphatically firing past Leonardo Loria in goal.

He played a part in the second goal as well, putting Riccardo Capellini under pressure as a low cross came into the box and the Juve youngster put past his own goalkeeper.




Paulo Dybala then got himself a brace – his second a tap-in on the rebound after Loria failed to keep hold of Ronaldo’s effort.

The 33-year-old was brought off at half-time, but not before one over-affectionate fan ran on to the pitch and locked him in a hug which required the help of two stewards to get out of.




Juve made it 5-0 early in the second half through Claudio Marchisio, before the traditional pitch invasion brought the game to a close in the 70th minute.
