Cristiano Ronaldo begins life at Juventus with a goal

Juventus played their traditional friendly game against Juventus B on Sunday, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his first goal for the club in a 5-0 victory.

The Portuguese took just seven minutes to open his account for the Bianconeri, calmly stroking home after finding himself clear of the defence.

The match, which took place at the Villar Perosa estate of the Agnelli family, was attended by just 4,800 Juventus fans who were given tickets, and was afforded full security detail.

A flying start for the first team saw them go in at the break with a 4-0 advantage, the burgeoning relationship between Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala earning the Argentine two goals of his own. The interval marked the end of Ronaldo’s participation, though he posed for a few selfies afterwards.

The match also marked the return to the champions of Leonardo Bonucci after his disastrous season with Milan last year. The defender was greeted coolly initially but an assured performance earned him applause.
