Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real in a £99.2million this summer, ending a remarkable nine-year spell with the Spanish side which yielded eight major trophies and five Ballon d'Ors. He'll have his another shot at scoring his first official goal for the club.

He came closest to ending his drought in Saturday's victory over Lazio when Joao Cancelo fired a cross towards his Portuguese compatriot inside the penalty area.

Cristiano Ronaldo has sent fans into a spin on social media after one of the most eye-catching, accidental goal assists for Juventus. During the 2-0 win over Lazio, Ronaldo was primed to score a tap-in until the goalkeeper got the slightest of touches on the ball.

Juve soon made the game safe after Mandzukic smashed home a goal-line effort after Ronaldo almost profited off a cross from Joao Cancelo 15 minutes from time.

"It's only two weeks that he's with us", Allegri said.

In the first home game for the seven-time defending champions, Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa started on the bench, with coach Massimiliano Allegri opting for Federico Bernardeschi and Mandzukic to spearhead the frontline with Ronaldo. "I'm happy with how he's fitting in, he is a very humble lad". "We're a unit and we need to win all the games we can". "We will improve in that sense and I know he will score an enormous amount of goals". For him, for us, to understand his game.

As Cristiano Ronaldo huffed and puffed and was made to wait for his maiden goal at new club Juventus on Sunday (Aug 26), his former employers Real Madrid demonstrated life goes on with a scintillating team display away to Girona in La Liga. "There are times we are too frenetic and other moments when we go to sleep".

Ancelotti spent most of his career at AC Milan with the 59-year-old winning three Serie A and four European titles as a player and coach with the northern giants.
