Ronaldo scores first Juventus goal in just eight minutes

Ronaldo scores first Juventus goal in just eight minutes

Juventus fans gathering to watch the five-time Ballon d'Or victor at Villar Perosa - in a rural area of Piedmont in northern Italy - held up banners.

"Juventus can't spring any surprises: they have a skilled board and President, plus their history, team and fans are so great that if it they don't win, they go close". However, the match had to be abandoned as the fans of the ace Portuguese footballer invaded the ground.

Cesare Bertoncello, from Turin, who was pointed out to AFP by security as being the first person to arrive in the queue to get into the ground at 0900 (0700 GMT) recalled the dominating presence of the Agnellis in years passed.

However, Allegri chose to focus on his overall influence of the squad's morale and mentality since making the club-record switch from Real Madrid.

"With the arrival of Ronaldo our expectations are higher for the Champions League". He was all alone and finished into the left side of the goal easily.

In 2017/18, Ronaldo was his usual dominant self in Europe as he smashed 15 goals to top the Champions League scoring charts and fired Real Madrid to continental glory for the third straight year.

Admittedly, he was playing against Juve's youth team in a pre-season friendly.

He then forced an own goal from Riccardo Capellini 10 minutes later.

As is custom, the game was interrupted in the second half for a pitch invasion and the game ended with Juventus picking up a comfortable win. Ronaldo tries to keep the ball up for his teammate but mis-controls the ball leaving him red-faced and his opponents in stitches. Ronaldo did not look best pleased in the clip, but I'm sure he makes a mockery of them in training most days.
